"that" in D and C refers to manner of walking

Some anthropologists regard the early hominids' manner of walking as being less efficient than in modern human beings.

The first split I can think of is "in" VS "of". We are comparing the "manner of walking" and the not underlined portion uses a possessive construct:
hominids' manner of walking == manner of walking of the hominids
the second term should mantain this construct: out A B E.

(C) as less efficient than that of
(D) to be less efficient than that of

Now it's an idiomatic issue. "regard Something AS or TO BE". The correct form is the first one and C is the correct answer.

Some anthropologists regard the early hominids' manner of walking as less efficient than that (manner of walking) of modern human beings.

Hope it's clear

Hi!
The correct idiom is: regard as.
Example: The level of ash is at higher density than aircraft manufacturers regard as safe for engines.

1. Using the idiom regards as - one can eliminate answer choices D & E.
2. Now the sentence structure: Some people regard the (the early hominids' manner) as less efficient than that (that is used to compare ''manner'') of modern human beings.

Some anthropologists regard the early hominids' manner of walking as less efficient than that of modern human beings.

(A) as being less efficient than in (wrong comparison)
(B) as less efficient than it is in (wrong comparison)
(C) as less efficient than that of --> correct. the manner of X is compared to the manner of Y.
(D) to be less efficient than that of (eliminated--> idiom is: regard as.)
(E) to have been less efficient than it is in (eliminated--> idiom is: regard as.)

Some anthropologists regard the early hominids' manner of walking as being less efficient than in modern human beings.

(A) as being less efficient than in
(B) as less efficient than it is in Manner of walking in modern Human beings is nonsensical
(C) as less efficient than that of
(D) to be less efficient than that of
(E) to have been less efficient than it is in

Regard X as Y. X (the early hominids' manner of walking) is Noun, thus, Y should be Noun.
Thus, A, D, E are out

The idiom is “Regard as / Regarded as” and based on this D and E are out.
