@sparkles3144: your answer is right for 1st question but for this question you are wrong.
The correct answer is D.
The sloth agrees with its; the construction moving so x that y is properly used in this sentence.
In E Hangs … sleeps … it moves is not a parallel construction; infrequently enough that is not a
correct idiom.
