C

A, D and E are out. Correct idiomn is "concieved of X as Y....." where X and Y are nouns or noun phrases.

Out of B and C, C is fare better.

why not A or B?


because 'it' modifies the noun 'conception of the radio'. The conception of the radio is not the tool for communicating with a large audience, the radio is. So 'it' should modify radio and not 'conception of the radio'
