She came in quietly ____ wake the baby

I can only choose one option

a) so as not to

b) in order to not

c) in order not to

So which one is correct

  • A C are both correct. This is not a good multiple choice question. – Kim Minh Nguyen Jun 26 '20 at 6:48

so as not to is correct choice as not to is the natural order (I'm trying not to...). in order not to is also fine in both grammar and meaning but it sounds too formal.
