Hi,

According to me A is right due to the correct usage of the idiom " So.... That ". Moreover in D, IMO 'such as' should have been used in case it intends to use it as an e.g.

My answer is A. The option is using correct idiom "so...that..".

B. Out for using incorrect idiom "so..., so that"
C. Incorrect idiom
D. Correct idiom use "such .... that...". But option D is wordy as compared to option A. I would prefer the use of adjective "abundant" in option A, rather then use of noun "the abundance" in option D.
E. Incorrect idiom. The correct idiom should be "such .... that...".
