C because you can eliminate D & E because "that" is not needed here; we are left with A, B, &C. C is the best answer because of ll structure.

Hmm... I can barely understand why "found ... resembling" is more parallel than "found ... and that resembles"

IMO, the 'that' in 'A' makes it sound like the animal resembles an hummingbird because it is found in the Phillipine.

An animal found in the Philippines... an animal resembling...

An animal found in the Philippines... an animal that resembles...

Which of these 2 sounds more //?

The 1st, obviously.

Noun - verb... noun - verb: Better than

Noun - verb... noun - adjective clause

i think the second option would only be // if it where:

An animal that is found in the Philippines... an animal that resembles

I think the full sentence might be like this:

First discovered more than 30 years ago, Lina's sunbird, a four-and-a-half-inch animal which was(is) found in the Philippines and which resembles a humming bird...

We can make it short by omit "which" but you have to change the form of verb 1 that follows "which" to verb ing, omit both "which" and "verb to be" and don't have to change form of the following verb.

"which was(is) found" to "found"
"which resembles" to "resembling"
