A means they were sipping coffee throughout the night. That is not intended at all

So I will go with phrase "as they sipped". Next morning she realized something different about her husband. That happens very often ha ha

but she realized it while the action of sipping the coffee was on going. So, shouldn't D be the answer?

Its too awkward. "he seemed, she noticed". seemed and noticed mean the same. Very funny SC

This post was
BOOKMARKED
When you use the pronoun ‘their’ for sipping the coffee, then a plural subject such as ‘they’ or ‘he and she; should follow as the modified subject. Choices A, B and E instead use the singular she or he. Hence they are out. Between C and D, the former is better because it avoids the use of past progressive and the unnecessary splitting of the verb phrase ‘seemed disoriented” by ‘she noticed’
