Errors in statement: 1) Incorrect Idiom "mistook-as". Mistook-for is correct idiom. Thus option A, B & E are out

D. Mistook a launched rocket for a minor earthquakeIllogical comparision. A rocket is not mistaken, but its launch is mistaken.
C. Mistook the launching of a rocket for a minor earthquakeCorrect choice
