Based on parallelism we can eliminate all except C and D.

Between C and D, there is only subtle difference

children's and childrens'.

Since we are talking about several children we need apostrophe on the plural. But the plural of the noun children is children itself. Hence its possessive form will be

children's and NOT childrens'

Therefore, I would go with C on this one. what is the OA?

Children in itself is plural, the singular is child.
