Stymieing the Armada’s plans to meet up with the Duke of Parma’s army off the coast of Flanders in the Spanish Netherlands, the reason for the defeat of the Spanish Armada was not only due to gale winds that favored the British but also the sacrificing of eight war ships as “fireships,” vessels filled with pitch, brimstone, gunpowder, and tar and sent downwind toward the closely-anchored Spanish fleet.

In the e-gmat article "modifier can modify far away noun", the relative pronoun "Which" can modify the main entity, provided that a phrase that describes the main entity separates the two.
Eg:2. The committee chose Mr. Smith of Left Block, who was the most experienced member, to lead all the management-related operations.
Is this above sentence correct because Left block cannot be modified by who and so who has to point to Mr. Smith, whereas in the question that i have posted, which can modify either the Armada or the defeat-both non living things?
So choice C in question is similar to this above example.
