My answer is C (made a typo error earlier). the process is similar to the act of rolling a dice.It is the correct pronoun to be used instead of them.
There is a question in OG on using 'likening ..to'-Greek Statue one.
Should we assume that 'likening..to' is an idiom?

I believe the critics are likening the description to the act of roling dice. Otherwise how would they criticize it.

IMO (C) is better from meaning point of view.

To what is the "which" related here ?
Is it the entire clause or only the physical word ?

OA is C... again as Newkid said, this is like the "lipstick on greek statues" from the OG :?
