in the second part of the comparision, "while alumni from smaller liberal arts colleges frequently show their allegiance by donating money", their is plural therefore A is out as it uses its.
Similarly D is out as it uses singular who.
in E there is a mismatch between whos and are.

between B and C it boils down to maters' and maters, the use if latter is wrong.

Hi guptarahul,

Alumni - Plural
Alumnus - Singular

For alumni THAT OR For alumnus THAT - both are correct. It does not matter whether the subject is singular or plural. that can be used for both. However, Just notice the VERB that comes after THAT :)

Just for the reference, here is official example:
Some bat caves, like honeybee hives, have residents that take on different duties such as defending the entrance, acting as sentinels and to sound a warning at the approach of danger, and scouting outside the cave for new food and roosting sites

In virtually all types of tissue in every animal species, dioxin induces the production of enzymes that are the organism's trying to metabolize, or render harmless. the chemical that is irritating it.
