in answer choice D, I think it can refer to 'naked eye' as well as to the 'green flash' then how D is a correct choice?

K, is there any explanation why can't it refer to 'naked eye'?

Naked eye/green flash requires specific favourable conditions.... ?

Kchaudhary, the simple answer is that it makes no sense for "it" to refer to "the naked eye"--how can "the naked eye" occur? If the intended meaning is clear, then it's fine to use a pronoun with multiple possible antecedents. Also, "the green flash" is the subject of the sentence, while "the naked eye" is part of a modifier. This creates the structural expectation that "it" will refer to "the green flash."
