A broadens the flesh behind its head the way a cobra does, feigning repeated strikes, but having no dangerous fangs and no venom, - not parallel with "hissing"

B broadens the flesh behind its head the way a cobra does and feigns repeated strikes, but with no dangerous fangs and no venom, - not parallel with "hissing"

C broadening the flesh behind its head the way a cobra does and feigning repeated strikes, but it has no dangerous fangs and no venom, and - correct

D broadening the flesh behind its head the way a cobra does and feigns repeated strikes, but with no dangerous fangs and no venom, and - not parallel with "hissing"

E broadening the flesh behind its head the way a cobra does, feigning repeated strikes, but with no dangerous fangs and no venom, and - missing "and" before feigning
