imo D.

malar,

if you remove middlemen , you will get following:

the contact is affected over a board surface instead of a series of regularly spaced points.(A)
- it does not join the second part so well with is affected.
the contact is affected over a board surface rather than at a series of regularly spaced points.(D)

Sounds better...

Agreed that it is D.
But why not B? "as opposed to"
What is wrong there? Just want to know.
