I interpreted this question in the following way :

Public places (coffeehouses and restaurants) > not all public places are C & Rs. so things inside () are subsets of the first thing.

Well-designed PP (Has Artwork)>> Well designed PPs has artwork, but any place with artwork may or may not be well designed. So B is out. C is out of scope too as it states a correlation which is not described here.

Uncomfortable PP (Not Well designed) or comfortable pp (well-designed)

Comfortable PP (Spacious interiors)> Comfortable public places obviously has spacious interiors. But any place with spacious interior is not necessarily comfortable. This eliminates A.

D and E state an indirect correlation between well designed pps and spacious interiors. From the () list we can say, to be spacious is mandatory for being a comfortable places and a comfortable place is well-designed. So, a well designed place also has spacious interior, that makes D the CA.
