Sorry for publishing OA = D so early.

P.S> 2 buzzgaurav: could you please explain what is wrong with the "as well as" in A? Because I thought the answer is A or D (because of the idiom), but only later I saw that the sun is the source for heat and light (they cannot stand separately). But what is wrong with the "as well as" in this case?
