The sloth, which is a South American mammal related to armadillos and anteaters, live in tropical forests where they travel through the trees upside down.
striked out part is a modifier modifying sloth .now when you read without modifier ==>THE SLOTH = singular subject ...LIVE = PLURAL VERB.
so this sub-verb agreement error is present.

basis this error we can eliminate A/B/D..so left with C/E.

C) a South American mammal related to the armadillo and the anteater, lives in tropical forests where it travels
CORRECT

E) a South American mammal in relation to the armadillo and the anteater, lives in tropical forests where it travels
in relation to==>this is unidiomatic in this case.hence C

The Sloth is a singular noun & sentence cites of fact about the sloth. So singular verb should be of simple present tense. Option C

E) a South American mammal in relation to the armadillo and the anteater, lives in tropical forests where it travels

Option C

The sentence has Subject Verb ("sloth" (singular subject) is with plural verb "live" ). and Pronoun ("They" - plural pronoun points to "sloth" - singular noun) error.

Also, once we confirm plural pronoun "they" to singular "it" , the related plural verb "travel" should also be converted to singular "travels"
