A. their horny jaws function for teeth
B. its horny jaws function for teeth
C. its horny jaws function as do teeth
D the horny jaws function as teeth do
E the horny jaws function as teeth



Its E - correct idiom usage - Jaws FUNCTION as teeth - "Function as Y" does not need DO. There is no explanation for it.
