The coloration of insects can serve as camouflage, as in the case of green insects that spend their lives in or near foliage, or to warn predators, as in the case of insects colored in yellow and black, which often signals that it is poisonous

option d is wrong because " as a predator's warning". thats what i thought was wrongly put. ( change of meaning) . option E is wrong because it doesnt hold with the flow. (it serves as A and B ) .  C is grammatically correct.

---I found a good parallism explanation ---

"as camouflage, as in the case" is parallel to "as a warning to predators, as in the case" -- which is the only reason why C is correct. In E , "to warn predators, as in the case" is not parallel to "as camouflage, as in the case"
