Official explanation- (C). With many decision points in this question, it is important to identify those that really matter. The verb “create” at the end of the sentence is a key decision: note that in (B), for example, “created” is in a tense parallel to “has eroded” – but the object of the verb “eroded” has already been set as “limestone” (the water has gradually eroded the limestone). So (B) is incorrect: adding “networks” after “created” ruins the construction “limestone that water has gradually eroded and created…”

(D) and (E) also commit errors with the same verb, using “creates” as a verb for the subject “topsoil.” Note that the topsoil does not create the network(s) of caves! The topsoil sits on top of the limestone that has been eroded, and the erosion of the limestone is what created the caves. So (D) and (E) create illogical meanings by using an improper form of the verb “create” in that situation.

(A) commits an error with “they” toward the beginning of the answer choice. The reason given later in the sentence for why farmers were driven away isn’t about the snakes (“they”) driving them away, but instead the thin topsoil over sinkhole-prone limestone is what created an inadequate farming environment. So “they” is illogical here: the shared reason for snakes to stay and farmers to leave is about the land, so “the snakes” aren’t who drove the farmers away.

The farmers were driven away due to some reasons. Only (E) maintains this structure. All other options make it look as though the habitat drove away the farmers for some reason or snakes drove away the farmers for some reason.

IMO, answer is (E)

The correct option IMO is (E). The first part of the underlined sentence does the trick. The essence of the sentence is to convey that the particular habitat is appealing to the snakes for a reason that actually drove away farmers from the particular place and it depends actually on the geography/physical properties of the area.

In the first two options, the use of 'they' implies that it was the snakes that drove the farmers away. So options (A) and (B) can be eliminated.

For options (C) and (D), the sentence sounds weird and incorrect and can be eliminated. So we're left with (E).

Manitoba’s famed Narcisse Snake Dens habitat is appealing to snakes for the same reasons that they drove away many farmers: its thin topsoil sits on top of limestone that water has gradually eroded underground, creating networks of small caves that can be entered through sinkholes.

Crux of the solution is to understand the statement

(A) is appealing to snakes for the same reasons that they drove away many farmers: its thin topsoil sits on top of limestone that water has gradually eroded underground, creating networks
//should be appeals as it is something that is the fact
(B) appeals to snakes for the same reasons that they drove away many farmers: its thin topsoil sits on top of limestone that water has gradually eroded underground and created networks
//snakes didnt drive them
(C) is appealing to snakes for the same reasons that it drove away many farmers: its thin topsoil sits on top of limestone that water has gradually eroded underground, creating a network
//use of it for snakes as well ass habitat is confusing + is (present continuous)
(D) appeals to snakes for the same reasons that it drove away many farmers years ago: its thin topsoil sits on top of limestone that water has gradually eroded underground and creates a network
// use of it
(E) is appealing to snakes for the same reasons that drove away many farmers years ago: its thin topsoil, sitting on top of limestone that water has gradually eroded underground, creates networks
//Correct - Reason is the subject that drove away farmers- Contrast is beautifully presented

Manitoba’s famed Narcisse Snake Dens habitat is appealing to snakes for the same reasons that they drove away many farmers: its thin topsoil sits on top of limestone that water has gradually eroded underground, creating networks of small caves that can be entered through sinkholes.

Firstly let us try to understand the meaning of the arugument.
It looks like the author is trying to say that some X habitat is appealing to snakes for the same reason that drove away many farmers. Later on trying to exemplify the reason for the appeal.

(A) is appealing to snakes for the same reasons that they drove away many farmers: its thin topsoil sits on top of limestone that water has gradually eroded underground, creating networks ----> INCORRECT. First of all the meaning of the argument is not clear. Also "they drove away......" the pronoun "they" here refers to the reason which is not grammatically correct.


(B) appeals to snakes for the same reasons that they drove away many farmers: its thin topsoil sits on top of limestone that water has gradually eroded underground and created networks.-----------> INCORRECT. Same reason as option A.

(C) is appealing to snakes for the same reasons that it drove away many farmers: its thin topsoil sits on top of limestone that water has gradually eroded underground, creating a network----> INCORRECT. it cannot refer to the reasons. First of all it is singular and reasons is plural. here it refers to singular habitat.That's not correct, the reason drove away the farmers. The meaning of the sentence is still not clear.

(D) appeals to snakes for the same reasons that it drove away many farmers years ago: its thin topsoil sits on top of limestone that water has gradually eroded underground and creates a network ------> INCORRECT Same meaning and pronoun error as discussed above.

(E) is appealing to snakes for the same reasons that drove away many farmers years ago: its thin topsoil, sitting on top of limestone that water has gradually eroded underground, creates networks ------->CORRECT. The meaning is clear. is appealing is perfect and works as working verb. ", sitting on top of limestone that water has gradually eroded underground" verb ing modifier correctly describing the noun topsoil. "creates network" here creates work as verb for the example presented after colon.

Manitoba’s famed Narcisse Snake Dens habitat is appealing to snakes for the same reasons that they drove away many farmers: its thin topsoil sits on top of limestone that water has gradually eroded underground, creating networks of small caves that can be entered through sinkholes.

(A) is appealing to snakes for the same reasons that they drove away many farmers: its thin topsoil sits on top of limestone that water has gradually eroded underground, creating networks
Narcisse Snake Dens habitat is a singular place, so the pronouns should be singular. 'they' is wrong

(B) appeals to snakes for the same reasons that they drove away many farmers: its thin topsoil sits on top of limestone that water has gradually eroded underground and created networks
Narcisse Snake Dens habitat is a singular place, so the pronouns should be singular. 'they' is wrong

(C) is appealing to snakes for the same reasons that it drove away many farmers: its thin topsoil sits on top of limestone that water has gradually eroded underground, creating a network
Correct

(D) appeals to snakes for the same reasons that it drove away many farmers years ago: its thin topsoil sits on top of limestone that water has gradually eroded underground and creates a network
Incorrect parallelism - topsoil sits on top ... and creates a network. Instead, 'creating a network of small caves' should be as modifier as in option C

(E) is appealing to snakes for the same reasons that drove away many farmers years ago: its thin topsoil, sitting on top of limestone that water has gradually eroded underground, creates networks
same as D. 'creating network...' should be as modifier

So option C would be the answer.

(A) is appealing to snakes for the same reasons that they drove away many farmers: its thin topsoil sits on top of limestone that water has gradually eroded underground, creating networks
Error
1. subject verb agreement, network need to be plural,as correct statement should be :network of small caves
(B) appeals to snakes for the same reasons that they drove away many farmers: its thin topsoil sits on top of limestone that water has gradually eroded underground and created networks
modifier error in created networks
(C) is appealing to snakes for the same reasons that it drove away many farmers: its thin topsoil sits on top of limestone that water has gradually eroded underground, creating a network -it corrects the modifier error in original statement

(D) appeals to snakes for the same reasons that it drove away many farmers years ago: its thin topsoil sits on top of limestone that water has gradually eroded underground and creates a network
verb error in -snakes den habitat appeals to snakes and modifier error in last created network
(E) is appealing to snakes for the same reasons that drove away many farmers years ago: its thin topsoil, sitting on top of limestone that water has gradually eroded underground, creates networks , -verb-ing modifier should be used

Correct:C

water has gradually eroded underground limestone and must have created a network.
We don't need present continous as user is talking about a general statement that it appeals to stakes

B solves all these issues

(A) is appealing to snakes for the same reasons that they drove away many farmers: its thin topsoil sits on top of limestone that water has gradually eroded underground, creating networks

(B) appeals to snakes for the same reasons that they drove away many farmers: its thin topsoil sits on top of limestone that water has gradually eroded underground and created networks

Fairly a simple question. A single split leads to the correct answer.
In the question "..to snakes for the same reasons that they drove..", the "they" is an unnecessary pronoun. As per logic, the meaning the sentence conveys is that the same reason influenced both the snakes and the farmers.
From this perspective, even the "if" pronoun has no antecedent. Thus, eliminate A, B, C and D.
Option E is the correct answer.

Look at the "it" and "they" jumping out at you in options A, B, C and D! :tongue_opt1
Also, notice "that." "That" here essentially acts as a modifier to "the reasons". Hence, "it" is out of question, as it's singular. So, eliminate (C) and (D).
Coming to "they." "Reasons that they (reasons) drove away many farmers." Doesn't really make sense. Reasons cannot drive away farmers. They are, afterall, the reasons for why someone/ something drives away the farmers. Eliminate (A) and (B).

Coming to (E). "That" nicely modifies the reasons and the entire sentence makes perfect sense. The reasons why the habitat appealed to snakes are same as the reasons that drove the farmers away. Hence, (E) is our answer.
