IMO C.

All options are weird. So, I think I will try to stick to the pronoun rule..

The 'their' and 'them' need to point to the correct nouns.. only C does that properly by using 'their' before mentioning researchers..

I hope this helps

Using Due To
Due to means "caused by" It should only be used if it can be substituted with "caused by"
It does not mean the same thing as "because of."
Incorrect: The game was postponed due to rain.
Correct: The game was postponed because of rain.
Correct: The game's postponement was due to rain.

a noun should follow due to

I'll go with E

a - modifier error
b - modifier error
c - usage of which
d - usage of being

more..than (correct idiom)

E for me. This correctly places modifier for leopards and also maintains parallelism with "second that".

A: Incorrect Modifier
B: Modifier Error
C: Hold it
D: Because of being – awkward
E: “their” referent issue – illogically modifies “Researchers”

Answer: C

E for me .

Due to should be followed by a noun phrase or noun. Due behaves like an adjective not adverb .

OA is E.

Only C and E clears the refrent issue with pronoun "Their". Between C and E, E is more clear idiomatically (more ...than).
