I believe subject here is rough surface

What are you evenly trying to paint- Rough Surface

Using POE. The choice now narrows down to D and E

I think D is the best choice as it could refer to primer or surface in choice E

I say D.

A: not ||. before applying the paint should be || w/ to sand.
B. changes the meaning, not sure if your suppose to apply primer first or not.
C. use of then is ok... but not || w/ "to sand"
E. not || also overusage of the surface.
not || b/c to sand the surface, apply primer to the surface, and then paint "it."
