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.
