Does not choice C meant that it is belived that the reptile was the largest flying creature, but not anymore?

If not, how can I imply that meaning by using "to be believed to"?

I am unsure why 'A' is wrong.

Believed... - is a noun modifier and it appropriately modifies the noun 'Q....."

Believed to be ....., "Q..." had a wing span of 36 feet.

the Quetzalcoatlus is the subject in the first sentence and "it" is the subject in the second sentence , so in order to be parallel "it" refers to the Quetzalcoatlus but not the wingspan
hope to have made it clear~

IMO C; use of "which" is wrong sorted out D and E ; conjunction required becoz of two independent clauses pertaining to A huge flying reptile - sorted out A; Between B and C - reading the whole sentence keeping B back, we will observe that The sentence becomes incomplete. So answer is C.
