I think we can eliminate A, D and E since they end with 'the rival of ' which is not correct usage. Here the 'group of letters' together can rival and are not real established rivals. So, we have B or C. In B, i think one to rival is also not good usage. so it leaves us with C

I think that it is C.

I will go with D. A, B, C have Subject - Verb agreement error with the use of singular verb makes to refer to plural noun powers.
