In GMATLand "do so" is preferred over "do it"

I go with B

(A) it was unusual to do it -> out
(B) it was unusual to do so -> hold this IMO answer
(C) doing that was unusual -> that ???
(D) that was an unusual thing to be doing -> awkward
(E) it was not usual to do -> not usual is wrong construct

In GMAT it refers to noun hence it here referring to verb or action is not preffered ,Best is B
