Dear Friends,

Here is a detailed explanation to this question-

The reason that tourists on safari are warned to keep a distance from elephants is because elephants are just as dangerous as predators are.

a. The reason that tourists on safari are warned to keep a distance from elephants is because elephants are just as dangerous as predators are
b. The reason that tourists on safari are warned to keep a distance from elephants is that elephants are just as dangerous than predators are
c. Tourists on safari are warned to keep a distance from elephants because elephants are just as dangerous as predators are
d. The reason that tourists on safari are warned to keep a distance from elephants is that elephants are just as dangerous as predators
e. The reason that tourists on safari are warned to keep a distance from elephants is that elephants are just as dangerous as other predators are

Choice A: This answer choice displays a redundancy error in the use of the phrase "The reason that"; the word "because", used later in the sentence, conveys reasoning in a more concise manner. Thus, this is not a very good answer choice.

Choice B: This answer choice fails to employ the correct idiom form "just as X as Y"; rather it uses the construction "just as X than Y". Thus, this answer choice is incorrect.

Choice C: This answer choice maintains correct idiom use and comparison, avoids redundancy, and conveys the intended meaning of the sentence. Thus, this answer choice is correct.

Choice D: This answer choice incorrectly compares the nature of elephants (being dangerous) to "predators". Thus, this answer choice is incorrect.

Choice E: This answer choice suffers from a meaning error due to the inclusion of the word "other"; the inclusion of "other" implies that elephants are just as dangerous as other animals within the category of "predators", while the intended meaning is the elephants are separate from this category but just as dangerous as the animals within it. Thus, this answer choice is incorrect.

Hence, C is the best answer choice.

All the best!
