Sorry for resurrecting such an old post but please clear my confusion.

Option C does mention Loch Ness as a lake by mentioning " live in Loch Ness, which, like Lake Champlain, is an inland lake connected to the ocean by a river.".
Why is C wrong otherwise?

I don't have a problem with the possessive when comparing the sea monster to Loch Ness's, but the issue comes in the rest of the sentence. The remainder of the sentence is supposed to compare the lake at Loch Ness with Lake Champlain, but because the lake at Loch Ness was never actually mentioned you are really comparing the Loch Ness monster to Lake Champlain. Awesome.
