Although films about the American West depict coyotes as solitary animals howling mournfully on the tops of distant hills, in reality these gregarious creatures live in stable groups that occupy the same territory for long periods.
A. films about the American West depict coyotes as solitary animals howling mournfully on the tops of distant hills
C. coyotes are depicted as solitary animals howling mournfully on the tops of distant hills in films about the American West
The correct answer is A. However, I think C is better because "coyotes" is consistent with "creatures", the subject of the second sentence. Can somebody explain it to me? Thanks:)
In A, we don't make it clear who is "howling mournfully on the tops of distant hill". Is it the films or coyotes?
So I will also go for C.
It is the "solitary animals" that are clearly being modified. A is fine.
