All the sentences have the same punctuation, a comma between the words “way” and “clinging.” The only difference is A and D did not capitalize “sticky” which is used as a name like in B and C. This sentence is based from a short story Mr. Sticky by Mo McAuley and the word sticky should be capitalized as it means a name.

According to the short story, quotation marks must be placed for the words vacuum cleaner. So it should be ‘vacuum cleaner’. Using quotation marks on these words might mean sarcasm as you would not use a vacuum cleaner in cleaning a fish tank.

All the four sentences have the same identical punctuation (a comma before "clinging"). The only difference is in the capital letter of Sticky (which is a surname, probably, since it refers to a "Mr.") in both answers B and C, which are totally identical.
