Can someone explain why the answer is B?

How would you explain the usages of it and it with precision? (their specific roles)

Thanks

A. "there" is "so much difficulty" in navigation "that is" considered a serious hazard in safety

B. it is so difficult to navigate that it is considered a serious safety hazard

C. "so difficult" "is it" to navigate "as to be" considered a serious safety hazard

D. "such is its difficulty to navigate", it is considered a serious safety hazard

E. "it is of such difficulty" to navigate "that is" seriously considered a safety hazard

I have marked the errors in each option in inverted commas.

I would go for option B.

Appreciate your input.

But still, my goal was to understand why the inverted commas are wrong. ex: "such is its difficulty to" navigate.
Indeed, it is but is there a specific grammatical reason?

Thanks,

C. so difficult is it to navigate as to be considered a serious safety hazard
D. such is its difficulty to navigate, it is considered a serious safety hazard
E. it is of such difficulty to navigate that is seriously considered a safety hazard


So X that Y is correct idiomatic usage, none but (B) is correct, hence correct answer Must be (B)
