The reason that certain spicy foods, such as the Habanero pepper, makes some people sweat is because they contain a chemical that stimulates the same nerve endings in the mouth as does a rise in temperature; this stimulation sometimes results in the activation of certain biological cooling mechanisms, one of which is perspiration.

OA is D.

What is the role of 'that'. It is not a relative clause here, isnt it.

D. The reason that certain spicy foods, such as the Habanero pepper, make some people sweat is that these foods contain a chemical that stimulates the same nerves in the mouth as does a rise in temperature

As you said, its D.

I simplified the sentence as : The reason is that these foods contain a chemical.

step 1. Remove extra info
The reason that certain spicy foods make some people sweat is that these foods contain a chemical

step 2 . Remove internal clause
The reason that certain spicy foods make some people sweat is that these foods contain a chemical

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

'spicy foods' is plural and hence needs 'make' (plural)
spicy foods....make people sweat

'reason' and 'because' are redundant.

stimulates the same nerves in the mouth as does a rise in temperature --> correct comparison

Please tell me whether choice C is wrong because of pronoun 'They'.
