Thanks in advance !!


1. "found in Puerto Rico in 1991" modifies "sloth" rather than "fossills", making A awkard, A out
2. "fossils" disagrees with "has been", B out
3. "fossils" disagrees with "was dated", C out
4. "the sloth was dated" rather than "the fossils were dated" is the meaning of E, E out

D remains

D

A -- confuses "arm of sloth" with "sloth" itself
B -- confusing "this" (finding of fossils) with "sloth"
C -- same
E -- "makes" not "made".. also comma required before "which"

A is correct only as in speaking.

D is the most appropriate in this case.
