my choice - A. 'to' is used for comparison. clearly here there is none, 'as to' is an idiomatic expression.

my choice is A and the only reason is the idiom usage of "as to". the only way to explain this OA is the idiom

A it is

Usage of As to and or As for is fine. They both act as preposition.

here in this sentence, prepositional phrase as to how it might affect modifies the noun calculation.

on the other hand as is mainly used as an adverb, conjunction, pronoun and in some instances as a preposition. Because of the passive voice used in this sentence as to suits better than as

Can someone shed light on the usage of "as". As far as I remember "as" introduces a clause.
