Nice one. A is best.

Pls remember the following idioms - the answer will get crystal clear

1. So X as to be Y - only A has it.
2. So X as to constitue Y - E is close but wrong.
3. So X that Y - B is close to this but still wrong with 'they have' inbetween. Also E has tense issue.

I thought it was C,
so unrealistic that they have constituted
so that is the right idiom is this choice wrong because of past tense in phrase have constitutated ?
