OA : B

IMO, Option D is implying that sting of bullet ant is aptly-named.
whereas,intended meaning is that particular ant species is aptly named as bullet ant.

D is incorrect because of the incorrect modifier " aptly-named bullet ant’s " it modifies sting but the intended meaning is that aptly-named bullet should describe ant not its stings.
I think lasts for is also redundant we can use only lasts.

C- the subject after comma should be tarantula hawk wasp, so wrong subject after comma

OA is B,

D is incorrect because the adejective "aptly-named" should modify "bullet ant" and not its "sting", which option d is trying to modify.
