a D in my opinion.
Rest all have issues with number i.e. singular or plural.

(C) hippopotamus - Africa's most feared animal - accounts
(D) hippopotamuses - Africa's most feared animals - account
(E) hippopotamuses - Africa's most feared animals - accounts


First part: "Despite their ...", so the subject must be plural. Eliminate B and C.

Verb "account" need to agree with plural subject, eliminate E. A and D left.

Since subject is plural, "animals" is correct. Choice D
