question:

Found throughout Central and South America, sloths hang from trees by long rubbery limbs and sleep fifteen hours a day, moving infrequently enough that two species of algae grow on its coat and between its toes.

b. sloths hang from trees by long rubbery limbs, they sleep fifteen hours a day, and with such infrequent movements
c. sloths use their long rubbery limbs to hang from trees, sleep fifteen hours a day, and move so infrequently
d. the sloth hangs from trees by its long rubbery limbs, sleeping fifteen hours a day and moving so infrequently
e. the sloth hangs from trees by its long rubbery limbs, sleeps fifteen hours a day, and it moves infrequently enough

which one is the correct option

I am confused between C and D?

even though the correct option is actually D, I do not understand OG's reasoning for the same.

even though the correct option is actually D, I do not understand OG's reasoning for the same.

First, Always read the full sentence (This is a reminder for me as well )

When we read the full sentence, we come across the pronoun "its" and the subject in the orig sentence is "sloths". Sloths cannot have the singular pronoun "its". Now if the "its" part was underlined, we would hurry up and look for choices that replace "its" with "their". But here in our case "its" is not underlined, so we have to change the subject to match with its pronoun !!

Now only choices D and E have the correct subject. We have eliminated 3 choices just because of one word !!

D correctly uses " so X that". So i take D.
