Government policies should ensure that network owners charge nondiscriminatory
prices to any client who wants to use their home network to distribute information.

When we want to refer to a person, the word "who" is correct over "which".

A. who wants to use their home network to distribute information
B. who wants to be using his home network to distribute information
C. who wants to use his home network to distribute information


"A client who want to be using": what does it mean? we do not need such passive construct here.
"any client" is singular so the pronoun cannot be "their".

All this leaves us with C, so IMO C.

Zarralou,

I think the OA is A.

Subject is plural (Network Owners), so pronoun "their" is correct


No, the OA is C.

Government policies should ensure that network owners charge nondiscriminatory
prices to any client who wants to use their home network to distribute information.

A. who wants to use their home network to distribute information
B. who wants to be using his home network to distribute information
C. who wants to use his home network to distribute information


"who" acts as a noun modifier and hence it refers to the last eligible noun => "client".
It cannot jump all the way to "network owners".

Hope it's clear

Zarralou,

Subject is plural (Network Owners), so pronoun "their" is correct

No, even if 'Who" was able to jump all the way back to "Owners", it doesn't make sense that "who" modifies 'owners'. According to sentence meaning it MUST refer bacj to client, which is SINGULAR.

Hope it helps
