Will go with A.

price is singular, so using they is wrong.
remaining free of is wordy.

We need "they" here to make it clear that it refers to consumers ..

Hi guys

here "they" refers to the Insurance Claims and not consumers

the pronoun to be used is "it" and not "they"

"they are free from claims and damages " implies that the customers are free from damages :lol:

but it is the Automobile Insurance which is free from claims

I chose A too but would have liked to choose C with "it" as the pronoun

I vote for C b/c it is the customers who are free of the claims & violations and not the price.
