    Can and could both talk about the possibility or ability. Only difference is Can is present and could is past.

    Also note the modifier Foraging and interspersing talk about the characteristics of whale so it is a fact and hence we need to use present tense to talk about facts therefore, we will use can. So, A,C and D are gone.

    Out of B and E uses the wrong comparison idiom so much as. We need as much as.

    B
