(A) Neanderthals had a vocal tract that resembled those of the apes - should be THAT
(B) Neanderthals had a vocal tract resembling an ape’s - It means that vocal tract is similar to Ape in appearance
(C) The vocal tracts of Neanderthals resembled an ape’s - It means that vocal tract is similar to Ape in appearance
(D) The Neanderthal’s vocal tracts resembled the apes’ - It means that vocal tract is similar to Ape in appearance
(E) The vocal tracts of the Neanderthals resembled those of the apes - CORRECT


Thus the answer has to be E

It cannot be E as the subject is vocal tracts and on merging with the rest of the sentence, the entire sentence becomes illogical.
A was a close contender but the issue it had was the usage of "those".
+1B.
P.S. stay away from brutal series.
