I don't know if "think to be" is idiomatic. My notes have "think of as" idiom. Leave that debate.

Two things -
1) "the same as" is idiomatic
2) split (from which / from where). I prefer from which. Hence A

Between A and C - I chose A for the sound of it ...

Although I am unsure, why C really is wrong, since we are supposed to use "where" for places/actual locations, so shouldnt the "primordial sea " count as well?

"thought to be of" is the correct idiom so B,C,D out
"like" in E incorrect so E out.

"which" in A modifies sea.

A is the right answer.
