B is right. The OA (D) is wrong.

Modifiers problem.
"it" refers to "the runway". So 'The runway' should come right after the comma.

So A, C and E are out.

Between B and D, D is awkward.

B is grammatically correct.

I understand that "Though it had about 11 inches of snow" should modify "the runway" but I am finding option D to be very awkward because " the runway was said by aviation officials" is weird.

Though it had about 11 inches of snow, according to aviation officials, the runway was in acceptable condition during the time of the emergency landing

Here according to is a phrase and if we omit this one , it clearly refers to the runway.

D is the most weird answer. the runway was said by officials to be in ...
I really have problem with the OA... Whats the source of the question...
