A: Based on the information you provided, you should write "pending I-485 AOS" for both line 24 and line 25. "DA" typically refers to "deferred inspection," which means that your immigration status was not officially determined when you arrived in the U.S. However, since you are currently in the process of adjusting your status to permanent residency, your current immigration status is best described as "pending I-485 AOS."
