Even I thought it is C, but the "can" at the end of the sentence misled me.

C.can be trained to communicate like humans can.

Does the can mean that the "humans can be trained to communicate"? If so, then it is altering the meaning of the original sentence, because the original sentence probably wants to convey that dolphins can be trained to communicate like how humans can communicate. Not how humans can be trained to communicate..

See the difference..

Thats why I am stuck. what is the OA Please...Is it E?

Yes now that I revisit the options I guess E is right, the second "can" does change the sentence.

Why not D?

"could" is incorrect?

oops .. sorry, just now i noticed the "as", obviously they can't communicate "AS" humans

In that case, E is the answer for me.

as humans "do" is the correct one

Only E seems to be an answer which says as humans do.
