(A) Believed to originate from a small area on their foreheads, elephants emit low-frequency sounds that may be used - Modifier error. Believed to originate.... must modify low frequency sounds and not elephanths

(B) Elephants emit low-frequency sounds that are believed to originate from a small area on their foreheads, and they may use this - We are not about the antecedent for 'this'

(C) Elephants emit low-frequency sounds, believed to originate from a small area on their foreheads, that they may use - Correct.

(D) Originating, it is believed, from a small area on their foreheads; elephants emit low-frequency sounds they may use - Same error as A + ';' is incorrectly used to connect a dependent clause with independent clause

(E) Originating, it is believed, from a small area on their foreheads, low-frequency sounds are emitted by elephants that may be used - 'that' illogically refers to elephants

My main doubt is that in option E, what does 'that' refer to.

Elephants or sounds?

Please help. Thank you.

Ideally 'that' should refer to low frequency sounds. But, in option E 'that' is referring to elephants.

Thanks Vaishak. That helps.

Is there some guideline or conceptual material also that you can recommend for this?

I generally get confused in these of, by, from phrases.

Thanks.
