+1 for C

(A) their social organization, mating rituals, and foods that they prefer --> 'Puffin' requires 'it'
(B) their social organization, mating rituals, and their preferred foods --> Same as A
(C) its social organization, mating rituals, and preferred foods --> Rectifies pronoun error and maintains parallelism
(D) its social organization, mating rituals, and about preferred foods --> Parallelism error.
(E) social organization, mating rituals, and foods that are preferred --> Change in meaning due to missing pronoun

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



The first thing you have to look at is whether to use the singular or plural pronoun. ‘The puffin’ is singular. So you will need to use the singular. That eliminates choices A and B. In E there is no clear connection between the items listed and the puffin. Ms. Kardon could very well be studying social organization in general. Therefore eliminate E as it changes the meaning. Now you have to pick between choices C and D. Choice D unnecessarily adds a second ‘about’. Choice C is the correct answer.
