C. coyote, because of its amazing ability to adapt to the presence of humans, has been able to expand it

Clearly C.

Modifier "Though..." should modify "coyote" not the "coyote's ability".

Clear C.
Only B and C have the correct modifier.
But C is more idiomatic with "Ability to"

B has pronoun problem "THEIR" and unidiomatic "ABILITY OF ADAPTING"

C here 100%

Just two factors. Modification norm eliminates A, D and E. In B, the plural verb ‘have ‘and the pronoun ‘their’ do not agree with the singular coyote. Therefore, C

Can anyone explain the use of " Because of " in the correct sentence, It should be "Because of Noun", But there is a complete clause after "because of" in the correct sentence

The prepositional phrase ‘because of’ should be followed by either a noun or noun phrase.
Because of its amazing ability … is a noun phrase.
2. What is after ‘because of ‘is not a clause as you have assumed. If it is a clause, there should be a verb. There is no verb in the modifier part in ‘C”.

Choice E is out because it is not clear what "it" refers to. This is same to unclear pronoun in A.
In addition, choice D and E sounds awkward.
Choice D "have" does not match "ability". This is same in B.
