Why can't we use remarkable advice?

Sayali said: (Feb 28, 2015)  
Am still confused for option D.

Please explain this why can't be valuable?

Priceless: Adjective.

Having a value beyond any ability to appraise or adequately appreciate <good advice is priceless>.

Synonyms inestimable, invaluable.

Why not advices instead of advice?

Ishita said: (Jun 1, 2017)  
Why not option A?

And 'invaluable' should not be confused with 'valueless'.

Shivani Aggrwal said: (Sep 21, 2020)  
Advice is uncountable. There is always advice. Not advices. If we want to make plural. We can write like some advice. But advices is wrong.

Invaluable is not synonymous with valueless. Invaluable means extremely valuable and indispensable, thus the choice in the answers seems questionable.
