i think it shud be A

The main catch is between A and C , other options can be ruled out without much effort.

in C "for guiding" is a less preferred form on the Gmat (as per me ! )

also in A " to Maryland to guide " makes more sense ; here "to guide" is "the infinitive" form.

Why is herself wrong?



We use reflexive pronoun when subject and object are the same.


Harriet Tubman an escaped slave herself.
hereself --object and Harriet Tubman -subject.

Other options.. "hereself" is not acting as an object
