Dear mohnish104,
I'm happy to help with this.

The structure "[adjective] enough" is casual and colloquial --- common in American spoken English, but not formal, not appropriate for the GMAT. The formal structure is "so [adjective] ... that." See
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2013/gmat-idiom ... nsequence/
We need a choice that begins with "so" and includes the word "that" ---- only choice (D), the OA, does this.

Does this make sense?
Mike

So X that Y is correct idiomatic usage , hence the correct answer must be (D)
