Error Analysis
The sentence has verb tense error use of "human did." is incorrect. Since did needs to refer to a verb in the sentence make the comparison logical. It cannot refer to the present tense verb "are".

Answer Choice Analysis

A. as adept at identifying patterns as humans did and are able to solve problems faster than humans and that when faced with complex decision-making in unknown environments they followed the same processes as humans did - incorrect for the reason stated above.

B. as adept at identifying patterns than humans and are able to solve problems faster than humans and that when faced with complex decision-making in unknown environments they followed the same processes as humans do - use of incorrect comparison marker "as ....than". Than should have use of comparative word.

C. more adept at identifying patterns than humans are, are able to solve problems faster than humans, and when faced with complex decision-making in unknown environments they followed the same processes as humans do - 1) Meaning error 2) Also the three phrases are not parallel.

D. as adept at identifying patterns as humans are and are able to solve problems faster than humans and that when faced with complex decision-making in unknown environments they follow the same processes as humans do - correct

E. adept at identifying patterns as humans and are able to solve problems faster than humans and that when faced with complex decision-making in unknown environments they follow the same processes as humans - For comparison "as" should be followed by a clause.

I can understand that C only has meaning error if you compare it with D. Am i missing anything?
