i think A

"it" may seem ambiguous, but i think it clearly refers to "rough surface"

Here is my analysis

(A) it and apply primer before applying the paint
--> Concise and clear in meaning. "it" refers to "a rough surface"
(B) it and prime it and paint it
--> "prime it" carries a different meaning from "apply primer"
(C) it, then prime it, then paint it
--> again, "prime it" is not same as "apply primer"
(D) the surface and apply primer before you apply paint to the surface
--> redundant use of "surface"
(E) the surface, apply primer to the surface and then paint it
--> again, redundant use of "surface"

pls explain

I think E expresses the meaning in the best way !!!

A-> here we talk about only two activities and is incorrect unlike E where 3 activities are considered in sequence
B -> and and is wrong
C-> then then is wrong
D-> is wrong
E is perfect !!

Another E.

It in A can be referring to surface or paint.

I think the word 'paint' is used as verb not a noun
