804. 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

Please give the explanations as well

A great question infact.....

B,C,E out for pronoun reference. IT no clear referent.
D - akward.

But problem is that A two attributes which I don't like.
1] Passive Contruction = to be registered
2] Structure => IC;however,IC should be preffered.

If A can survive above 2 , it is the answer.
This is another Q to choose between bad/worse.
