A. wild animals have less total fat than do livestock fed on grain and more of a kind of fat they think is
B. wild animals have less total fat than livestock fed on grain and more of a kind of fat thought to be
C. wild animals have less total fat than that of livestock fed on grain and have more fat of a kind thought to be
D. total fat of wild animals is less than livestock fed on grain and they have more fat of a kind thought to be
E. total fat is less in wild animals than that of livestock fed on grain and more of their fat is of a kind they think is

Me thinks B.

Must check what items are being compared:
(A) wild animals...do livestock? no.
(B) wild animals...livestock? yup.
(C) wild animals...that of livestock? no.
(D) total fat of wild animals...livestock? no.
(E) total fat in wild animals...that (aka total fat) of livestock? perhaps.

between B and E. I think A is more concise and found E to be much too wordy, especially at the end of the sentence.

I think C is fine.(changed)

A. wild animals have less total fat than do livestock fed on grain and more of a kind of fat they think is-- THEY, who thinks nothing to modify

B. wild animals have less total fat than livestock fed on grain and more of a kind of fat thought to be-- I think ... than livestock have... would make this one perfect, so out

C. wild animals have less total fat than that of livestock fed on grain and have more fat of a kind thought to be-- this should be fine. compares amount of fat and ...thgought to be... is fine

D. total fat of wild animals is less than livestock fed on grain and they have more fat of a kind thought to be--- that of is missing

E. total fat is less in wild animals than that of livestock fed on grain and more of their fat is of a kind they think is --- this one is tempting but again THEY, who?

1. they has no clear refferent. It seems to be referring to wild animals. This is wrong.
2.total fat of wild animals is compared to livestock.
3.Correct. fat of wild animals is compared correctly to fat of livestock. the two parts of the sentence are parallel.
4. Incorrect comparision of fat with livestock.
5. they here has no clear referrent. wild animals are not thinking about their fat.
