We need to compare insects 'in' coffee plantations with insects/those 'in' tropical forests. C is the only option that uses this 'in' and should be the correct answer.

we can discard B and E due to "of"
D is not a correct comparison.
but what is the issue with "A" .

Thanks.

Here its compare with

We need those to refer back to insects

We need to maintain parallelism

Hence correct answer choice is C

The main error (well, at least an important error) in the incorrect answer options is the faulty parallelism in the "either-or" construction.

In A and E, you need "or finding". In B and D, you need "or reported finding".
