An adverb should always come between auxiliary verb and main very.
Left out with options B and D, now 'it' in option be is ambiguous. Hence, D is the answer...

I hope it helps...

I am afraid not; the material level of reality is the former and the mystical level of reality is the latter. 'Of reality' is just a prepositional intermediary.
