For example, i got two adjustment layers (A and B). At last, i will only use one of them. While considering which one is better, i can compare them by turning A visible and B invisible, then A invisible and B visible. This is not so good because in the transition, there is a stage that BOTH layer A and B are invisible. Is there a single way/shortcut that i can switch their visibilities in one go?

You can create two layer comps (Window > Layer Comps).

Assign a shortcut to the next and previous comp items (Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts > Panel Menus > Layer Comps)

Then just use your assigned shortcuts to toggle between comps.
