Arguments against using children as courtroom witnesses are often predicated on the unproved assumption that children’s memories are more malleable and less trustworthy than adults.


The memories of the children are compare to the memories of the adults,

(A) adults
wrong comparison, memories are compared to the adults
(B) that of an adult
Better than the first option but still wrong because memories is plural and 'that' here is singular.
(C) an adult is
memories is compared to adults
(D) those of adults
Correct comparison
(E) adults are
wrong comparison between memories and adults.

'Memories' is plural and therefore the singular 'that' cannot refer to the plural memories in the context.
