FOR thousands of years, the Indus River has brought the blessing of water for crops and the curse of destructive floods. But today the Indus River poses a new danger to the site of an ancient civilization that flourished at the same time as those in the river valleys of the Tigris and Euphrates and the Nile.

Moisture and salt deposits threaten to erode and destroy the remarkable Mohenjo Daro archeological excavation that has fascinated and awed scientists and visitors since its discovery under a giant mound of earth more than 60 years ago.

Hi Bhavya, the word flourished is elided (assumed) in option A. It needs to be read as:

Salt deposits and moisture threaten to destroy the Mohenjo-Daro excavation in Pakistan, the site of an ancient civilization that flourished at the same time as the civilizations in the Nile delta and the river valleys of Tigris and Euphrates (flourished).

Quote:
2)option D flourishing at the same time as those did---if we replace THOSE with THAT will option stands correct

that would stand for civilization. So, the sentence would convey:

civilization the Nile delta and the river valleys of the Tigris and Euphrates.

That is an unacceptable change in the meaning of the original sentence, since the original sentence conveys that there there are (multiple) civilizations the Nile delta and the river valleys of the Tigris and Euphrates.
