IMO, "physical characteristics" is the key---->we're talking about type of bat rather than the species' individuals-----> " those" indicates individuals, which is not correct----> D and E can be crossed.Among three left, A is ok.

Thanks for the explanation.

The OA is indeed A.

However, I still dont understand...

Does "the size of a bumblebee and weighing about as much as a penny" sound good to you?

It does NOT sound good to me as well ...but it maintains a PHRASE, which is correct to perform clarification to " the hog-nosed type".

I will vote for A.

from x to y is correct idiom

The phrase in between comma modifies the type of bats -- since it is not an independent clause ... "weighs about" is not the correct uses. Hence, "weighing..." seems to modify the bat correctly.

I am confused between A and B.
Vote for 'A'.

Can someone tell me why B is not the correct answer.
