I know so that is adverb of purpose. But Can you explain why is not A?.
So As To is adverb of purpose and in order that is adverb of purpose

Is better so that.
In order to and So as to are both redundant (you can say to)

D: "So that" is correct and "so as to" is an incorrect idiom however "so x as to y" is a correct idiom.

To GMAT TIGER
So As To is a correct idiom
So AS To do sth: with the intention to do sth ( Oxford Dictionary) ---> and this confuses me.

its D

this can help out:

the correct form is So [adjective] as to [verb]

with an adjective :
so as to be ..
My computer game is so entertaining as to value be genuinely addictive.

so .. that
In fact, it's so addictive that I spend several hours every day playing it.

with an adverb :
Jim worked hard so as to get a promotion
