E.

A and B have the wrng idiomatic expression, should be "different from"

In C, the part after the semi colon needs to be an IC, whichshould make sense independently, but here it doesnt.

D- worng comparison, the chemical comparison needs to be compared, but in D thats not happeneing.

E- idiom is right, comp is right.

I think E is wrong since "from that of any terrestrial lava's" should be "rom that of any terrestrial lava". Lava's is redundant.

(C) correctly uses the semicolon. All other sentences are fragments.

C and E solve the problem of non usage of That to distinguish between the lava.
E has a problem in "Lava's".
So C. it is an Independent clause. Explain if otherwise.
