A. on the island of Kauai as Iowa or Indiana, mostly for corn but also for soybeans and sunflowers(wrong comparison)
B. on the island of Kauai as Iowa or Indiana, mostly for corn but also soybeans and sunflowers(same as in A,for is missing before soybeans)
C. on the island of Kauai as Iowa or Indiana; they are mostly for corn but also for soybeans and sunflowers(no reference for they)
D. on the island of Kauai as in Iowa or Indiana, mostly for corn but also for soybeans and sunflowers(correction in comparison was done by putting preposition in)(correct)
E. on the island of Kauai as Iowa or Indiana, being mostly for corn but also for soybeans and sunflowers(wrong comparison)

Choice D is correct

Thanks

D is the correct answer.

We should use "on" with "the island of Kauai".

However, Iowa and Indiana are US states, and we should use the preposition "in" with them. We can't say "on California" or "on Texas", only "in California" or "in Texas".

D is the only option that correctly uses "in" with states.
