"Resemblance between X and Y" is the correct idiom. D should be the answer.

(E) the close resemblance of wolves with dogs becomes-------- had it been wolves resemblance with dogs it would have been a fair shot

A, B ,C all have ambiguous reference with them/their

Between D & E, I will pick D, but I can't find a good reason why I should eliminate E

Any good reasons why E is wrong here??
