Sentence is based on "so..that" construction

Also Young's tribulations require it's refrence in 2nd clause of sentence so "his" is required here

"His" is not present in A and D so they are out

C-wrong as sentence talks about " difficult were.. that" awkward construction

E-was fierce,that
Placement of that after was firece and comma makes this sentence a bit awkward so wrong

B is correct choice

Give kudos if it helps

Right answer seems wrong to me since 'that' shouldn't be preceded by a comma. Plz reply

Brigham Young's tribulations during the migration west were difficult and determination to resettle in Salt Lake City and make it LDS' new hub was fierce, so that it seems divine providence has blessed the state of Utah.

B. So difficult were Brigham Young's tribulations during the migration west and so fierce his determination to resettle in Salt Lake City and make it LDS' new hub, that

At first I also hesitate to choose this choice but after considering the rest of choices I think "B" is the best.

Let's see if the sentence doesn't have "," before that
So difficult were Brigham Young's tribulations during the migration west and so fierce his determination to resettle in Salt Lake City and make it LDS' new hub that it seems divine providence has blessed the state of Utah.
"That" can be kinda ambiguous whether it is a part of the idiom "So...that" or refers to "LDS' new hub"?
So I think in this case it's better to have comma before that
