"A" is clear and concise.
Uses synchronized to - idiomatic.

A of one or more swimmers synchronise to
movements don't synchronise themselves , so it should be a passive voice so rejected

b of one swimmer or more is synchronised with
"movements" needs plural very not "is"

c of one or more swimmers are synchronised with

d by one swimmer or more is synchronised to
"movements" needs plural very not "is"

e by one or more swimmers synchronise to

I think synchronise is better with "with" not sure though ..
but my answer is 'C'

I am sure, synchronise with is the right idiom.
Also since movements is plural, we should use "are"
Thus I'll pick C.
