The physical structure of the human eye enables it to sense light of wavelengths up to 0.0005 millimeters; infrared radiation, however, is invisible because its wavelength—0.1 millimeters—is too long to be registered by the eye.
(A) infrared radiation, however, is invisible because its wavelength—0.1 millimeters—is too long to be registered by the eye
(B) however, the wavelength of infrared radiation—0.1 millimeters—is too long to be registered by the eye making it invisible
(C) infrared radiation, however, is invisible because its wavelength—0.1 millimeters—is too long for the eye to register it
(D) however, because the wavelength of infrared radiation is 0.1 millimeters, it is too long for the eye to register and thus invisible
(E) however, infrared radiation has a wavelength of 0.1 millimeters that is too long for the eye to register, thus making it invisible

Its A
---------------------------------------

(B) however, the wavelength of infrared radiation—0.1 millimeters—is too long to be registered by the eye making it invisible
>> In is unclear whether the pronoun it refers to infrared radiation or the wavelength
(C) infrared radiation, however, is invisible because its wavelength—0.1 millimeters—is too long for the eye to register it
>> In is unclear whether the pronoun it refers to infrared radiation or the wavelength
(D) however, because the wavelength of infrared radiation is 0.1 millimeters, it is too long for the eye to register and thus invisible
[color=green]>> too awkward.

(E) however, infrared radiation has a wavelength of 0.1 millimeters that is too long for the eye to register, thus making it invisible
>> awkward and the same pronoun problem

also got A for the answer, although C was a close second until I read the end with the vague pronoun reference
