Sentence Analysis
As we read the sentence from the beginning, we understand that somethings are almost like clones, and they are like clones in terms of their similarity to each other. So, as we read further, we expect to see a plural noun that can be “like clones”. However, we encounter the noun “the cheetah species’ homogeneity”. Please note that “cheetah species” is not a noun here; it’s acting as an adjective to “homogeneity”.

So, we have an error here – Illogical modification. We know that homogeneity cannot be like clones!

Also, since we have a pronoun “them” (‘makes them especially”), it needs to refer to a noun; however, cheetah species is not acting as a noun in this sentence. Thus, we do not have an antecedent for “them”.
