A wrong. Usage of as isnt right here. As=because. So, .....because to require is wrong.
B wrong..ideal idiom so that.so is missing here
C repeats mistake as A.also,enough is redundant
D correct.usage of idiom so..that
E wrong..enough for them is redundant

IMO D.

An entry level question from MGMAT that simply establishes the correct usage of the idiom 'so x that '. D is the correct answer.

Because the usage 'to such a degree as to ' is unidiomatic; one can accept "so x as to" as legitimate but not the idiom as it is in A.
