(A) the nests of leaf cutters and most other ants
(B) the nests of leaf cutters and most other ants, which are
(C) leaf cutters and most other ants, whose nests are
(D) leaf cutters and most other ants in having nests
(E) those of leaf cutters and most other ants with nests

We need logical "leaf cutters and most other ants" vs "raider ants" - Only C is correct with clear lofical meaning.

Unlike the nests of leaf cutters and most other ants, situated underground or in pieces of wood, raider ants make a portable nest by entwining their long legs to form "curtains" of ants that hang from logs or boulders, providing protection for the queen and the colony larvae and pupae.

(A) the nests of leaf cutters and most other ants - illogically compares the nests with raider ants
(B) the nests of leaf cutters and most other ants, which are - illogically compares the nests with raider ants
(C) leaf cutters and most other ants, whose nests are - Correct
(D) leaf cutters and most other ants in having nests - The prepositional phrase “in having nests” seems to modify the subject “raider ants” and thus imply that raider ants have their nests underground. From the remaining part of the sentence, it is clear that this is not the case.
(E) those of leaf cutters and most other ants with nests - illogical comparison , It is not clear what “those” refers to
