Pls help me to explain:
all one has to do is + Subject Complement
Subject Complement cannot be simple verb. It must be Gerund or Infinitive.
All one has to do is TO LEAVE ...

how can it be : all one has to do is LEAVE?

I also arrived at option B. But the correct answer is C. I searched on internet and I found the following explanation -

Think of this sentence:

All you have to do is study hard and visit TestMagic often.

I would like to hear the reasoning from other folks who arived at correct answer.
