OA = D

I made the POF and got B and D as possible answer.

Apparently D shows up 2 independent clauses related by a semicolon; however, these clauses are not independent they are connected by the word "such"; if the first sentence is erased, the meaning of the second one gets lost.

In letter B, I realized that ''rated about 20/500'' may be parallel to ''legally blind''; however, ''as an adult'' is not correct; it must be ''in an adult''.

Which alternative is less wrong? And why?
