One of the true classics!!

Although films about the American West depict coyotes as solitary animals howling mournfully on the tops of distant hills, in reality these gregarious creatures live in stable groups that occupy the same territory for long periods.

A) Sounds good to me. "Depict ~ as" is the correct idiom, I think.
B) "in films about...coyotes are" doesn't sound correct.
C) "..."about the American West" doesn't sound correct.
D) "as if they were" is not correct.
E) Sounds almost good, but "depict to be" isn't idiomatic...

A? Plz correct me if I'm wrong.

I pick C.

It is concise to place the subject "coyotes" at beginning of the sentance.

C for me.

This passage talks about coyotes and not films and coyotes is the subject. So start with coyotes

very good one.

option B and D has major flaw here.

B. in films is awkward and incorrect

D. as if is incorrect.

now E is a good option but depicted to be is unidiomatic.

so we are left out with A and C.

C is using a unnecessary passive form.

So A remains.

I vote for A.

Used POE
A - Correct.
B - Incorrect. Changes the meaning
C - Incorrect. Changes the meaning
D - Incorrect. .....solitary, mournfully howling animals .....
E - Incorrect. ......solitary and mournfully howling animals.....

Hence A is correct.

Precisely my reasoning! OA is A!
