    I am not a teacher.

    Answer d is wrong grammatically because you need an adverb modifying 'return'. The only possibility is a.

    I do know that an adjective should come between "as" and "as", and both answers b and d is are adjectives.

    As you now know, you needed an adverb so a is the correct answer. Who told you the correct answer is b?

    Note my corrections above. Remember to capitalise and punctuate correctly.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
