In 1929 relatively small declines in the market ruined many speculators having bought on margin; they had to sell, and their selling pushed other investors to the brink.

a. speculators having bought on margin; they had to sell, and
---having bought seems incomplete
b. speculators who had bought on margin; having had to sell
---"having had to sell their selling" doesn't make any sense.
c. speculators who had bought on margin; they had to sell, and
---Proper usage of tense.
d. speculators, those who had bought on margin; these speculators had to sell
---"those who" unnessary. Again had to sell their selling is wrong.
e. speculators, who, having bought on margin and having to sell
---tense problem. Also this complicates the sentence.

'C' is the best answer
