 Hide Ans

Solution:
Option(C) is correct

Do not make the mistake of deciding to eliminate either ‘because’ or ‘in that’ – both are more or less the same. In A, the expression ‘show…. as moving’ is incorrect; we need ‘show…. moving’.

Similarly ‘show to be moving’ is incorrect in D. B changes the meaning and makes the squid one of the most enormous of all living creatures. We are talking about the creature in its natural environment and so the vague ‘a natural environment’ in E is not appropriate.
