    Well, if I remember correctly, it's a two step process for the dissociation of sulfurous acid... you can rule out option B because sulfurous acid has 3 oxygens, not 4. You can also rule out option A and C because those would be Ka2 after dissociation. And you're left with E and D. And to find K, it's products over reactants, so my guess is that it's option D.

    Why was SO3^2- a reactant (in the other answers)?

    Like I said before, it's a two step process. Seeing as how sulfurous acid is a pretty strong acid, it will completely dissociate both hydrogens. 2 moles of H+ per mole of acid.
