B has problems identifying the subject
C changes the meaning saying that they only howl in films
D uses if
E changes meaning also.

somehow in A it seems the subject is american films?

but C does sound a bit passive....

fresinha12,

C is wrong.

the prepositional phrase in films about the American West has been misplaced. It seems to indicate that cayotes only howl in films.

A and B are close except in terms of idiom usage?

Is it depicted to be or depicted as?

I think it is depicted as some type rather than depicted to be (state of being).

Picked C originally, but thanks to Ritesh, I can see why I am wrong. A is also active, and yes, C does change the meaning of the sentence, besides C uses the passive voice

i agree.

in C, it does not say who is depicting the coyotes. In addition, as riteshgupta1 mentioned, C implies coyotes only howl in films.
