    Well, i think you must select the first sentence.

    You appear to have a lot of homework!


    Here you have to change 2 phrases:

    2- in order
    3- arriving

    " Leave early in order not to arrive late"

    - Leave early in order not to arrive late.
    = in order TO DO something/ in order not TO DO something
    (we use it to express purpose or aim or intention)

    You can also say:
    Leave early SO THAT you won't arrive late.
    (to express purpose)

    I agree with Cherry and Learner.

    Cherry, Learner and Tita are right!

    Learner's suggestion sounds more natural.

    Leave early so that you don't arrive late.
