Why not "co-operate with"?

Why 'on'?

In means inside. On means over.

'Happily' should be replaced with 'Thankfully'. It does not indicate that the zoos were 'happy' to not co-operate. So, the first error is option A and hence it should be the answer.

It must be with in option c rather than on because zoo people are cooperating. Is it right?

Why "on"? Please explain.

Can anyone explain when exactly should we use on & in?

I think it means approve on something.

Like:scheme or convention.
