Correct idiom is "prefer to"

B. exhibits the preference to use either the right or the left hand (i.e. claw, paw, or foot) has been expanded and includes (Correct Idiom and "The list" is singular so require "Exhibits")
C. exhibit a preference in either using the right or the left hand (i.e. claw, paw, or foot) has been expanded to include (Incorrect Idiom)
D. exhibit a preference for using either the right or the left hand (i.e. claw, paw, or foot) has been expanded to include (Incorrect Idiom)

I vote for D

Here the subject for "exhibit" is "animals". "List" cannot exhibit preference for using hand. Since "Animals" is plural, we must not use "exhibits". A and B are out because of this reason.

Out of C, D, and E, the correct use of idiom would be "preference for", hence D is correct
