Answer Choice D correct verb tense and - at the St Louis Zoo parallel to at other zoos

A, B and E uses incorrect verb tense
C uses simple present stating fact, uses "and" as parallelism marker - at the ..... and at zoos

hi,
C is wrong as the choice misses out on word 'other'..
(C) Black-and-white ruffed lemurs are bred at the St. Louis Zoo and at zoos across the United States..
since we are talking of st louis zoo and all other zoos across the US, so when we say at zoos, it includes st louis too which has already been mentioned..
if it was given st louis zoo in country X and at zoos across the US .. other would not be required
