Sentence is talking about diet of bear

A. and animal carcasses rarely.
--usage of and here while talking about diet of bear does not make sense

B. and animal carcasses is rare.
--same as A

C. with animal carcasses as rare.
--with makes sense but usage of 'as rare' diet as rare is awkward

D. animal carcasses a rarity.
--need to have conjunction to associate vegetarian diet with animal carcass

E. with animal carcasses a rarity
--sounds good
Usage of with +
Describing combination a rarity as a noun

Despite being a carnivore, the diet of the bear is largely vegetarian – fresh leaves, fruits, berries, nuts, roots, and tubers - and animal carcasses rarely.


In the above sentence : fresh leaves, fruits, berries are described as vegetarian diet within hypens.
In the underlined part exception is provided for non vegetarian diet. Hence use of 'and' is unwarranted
'with' should be used. Leaving us to option A and E.

Option E clearly modifies diet. Hence Option E

Press Kudos if you like.

This sentence doesn't work. The non-underlined portion mistakenly says that "the diet of the bear" is a carnivore. That is a standard modifier error, so we need to throw this problem out!
