I thought this one was a little trickier, but then reread it and realized its actually an incredibly simple question. Mockingly so. Outright I know it's not B or D, the mere beginning of each of the sentences are too cluttered to be called 'precise', and its the same for C, which has a cluttered ending. So your answer is A.
