I believe option A is wrongly underlined !

correct answer is C
We need a "with" at the in order to connect it with Sphincter Muscle and "producing" clearly refers to act "How sound is created"

Main reason to eliminate A and B is that they lack any contrast word such as but ,while or although.We need a contrast here.
And you are right that in option B,creating doesn't have any proper justification.
In A,produced by is not wrong.But its in passive voice.You should chose passive voice only when no right answer with active voice is available.

First usage of nevertheless:
it was an old song, but nevertheless it was a favorite when they performed it.

meaning of nevertheless is more close to "despite this/that".

usually preceded by contrasting word such as 'but' or a contrasting phrase.

Thus A and B can be eliminated.

B) meaning error in B - it sounds like "Dolphins lack vocal cords and this is why they are making all kind of sounds."

D) but they do create sounds, a complicated system of whistles, squeaks, moans, trills, and clicks being produced --- a noun phrase defines the noun infront of it. such as in this case 'sound' is defined by a noun phrase which really distort the meaning of sentence. Moreover click are not produced "sphincter muscle inside the blowhole". Actually very easy to eliminate this option.

E) but nevertheless creating sounds: a complicated system of whistles, squeaks, moans, trills, and clicks produced by --- colon is for giving example .

C) but they do create sounds, producing a complicated system of whistles, squeaks, moans, trills, and clicks with ---- Correct option .
"But" right contrast. even "but nevertheless" should also be correct here.
"they" > Dolphins.
"producing" >> modifying prior sentence. making a complete sense.
use of by/with --- by using 'by' we are saying only this muscle, 'with' says addition to this something else too. with seems to be a better use here.

Hope that is helpful.
