MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



The first thing you have to determine is whether to use ‘such’ or ‘so’. You use the word ‘so’ in connection with adjectives. For example, you would say that ’The purchase of the necklace is so extravagant that it must be returned.’ The word ‘such’ is used in connection with nouns. For example, ‘the restaurant offers such exquisitely prepared cheeses that they melt in your mouth.’ The latter formula clearly applies here. That means that choices A, B and E are incorrect. The present tense, not the present perfect, is necessary to describe habitual actions. Eliminate D. C is also more efficient than D. Choice C is the correct answer.
