    A) is incorrect. You could say "It looks/seems easy to me".

    hi bhaisahab,
    Thank you for your help. But I don't really understand why Sentence A is incorrect and why it becomes correct after it's rewritten as " It seems easy to me." Could you make it more specific for me to understand, please? Thanks a lot.
