IF we have a mind of meaning focus, if we think that we already have enough grammar rules for sc, and we focus on analysis of meaning , this question is easy.

this simbolize for gmat thinking on sc.

The fossils do not resemble a fish or a land-animal, the large scaly creature does. (i.e. the fossils look like fossils; they do not look like a fish or a land animal - the large scaly creature to which the fossils belong resembles both a fish and a land animal.)

Option E implies that the fossils resemble both a fish and a land animal and is hence wrong.
Option A correctly implies that the large scaly creature resembles both a fish and a land animal and is hence correct.
