The correct answer is (E). In Standard Written English, “looked like” and
“looked as if” are not synonyms for “appeared that,” eliminating (A), (B), and
(C). “Would have” in (C) changes the meaning. “Appearances were that” and
“would be crossing” make (D) wordier than the succinct, and correct, (E).
