    A isn't correct. If you want it to be correct you have to say like this:If you ever pay a visit to the museum you'll be satisfied to see all the collection which ranges from ancient sandals to modern high heels.

    However, according to Longman English Contemporary Dictionary,
    see (that)
    He saw that she was crying.
    Such being the case, why is it not acceptable to say "you can see that all the collection ranges from old sandals to modern high heels"?
