B. found in the Phillippines and that, resembling
C. found in the Phillippines and resembling
D. that is found in the Phillippines and it resembles
E. that is found in the Phillippines and that, resembling

A, B, C) I think it needs "that" before the sentence.
D) Sounds ok.
E) "that, resembling" doesn't sound correct.

I'd choose D.

yup I am with D.

al A B E use Pronoun "That" ...which is wrong it should be it.

between C and D. D makes more sense cause C gives the impressing that the animal is found resembing .....

A, B and C are out because we need "that" to introduce a restrictive clause. You can try saying this sentance "First discovered more than 30 years ago, ... , a four-and-a-half-inch animal found...." Doesn't it sound weird?

This would be better "First discovered more than 30 years ago, ... , a four-and-a-half-inch animal that is found...."

E is out because "that, resembling" is not the correct usage.

D is right. The "it" is okay in this sentance because it has a clear referant, "a four and a half inch animal."

C)..."found" and "resembling" are participles (past and present) that describe the animal. D) should be out b/c it lacks parallelism. moreover, the tense is wrong.

A for me.

I think resembles a humming bird is correct than resembling a humming bird. So it should be between A and D. I do not think that is required. Hence I would go with A.

I agree you need participle whhic acts as adjective in order to maintain ||ism

so C is the answer.

OA is C

Chriistoph, can you please explain why "that is found" is incorrect?

"that is found" and "it resembles" are not parallel. conjunction (that) + linking verb (is) + verb (found) and subject (it) + resembles (verb). it should read like this "...that is found and resembles...".
