IMO

D, because before semicolon its a comp sentence, and after however, its a complete sentence,

however is helping connect the two sentences

I am skeptical about D. IMO its B

we dont need a two connectors "however" and "semi-colon"

IMO B

in D

bright; however, he

the comma after however makes the sentence redundant.

the sentence has to be without comma, like

However he failed

In B, the second part of the sentence is without comma.
