we have to compare decisions of John Marshall with decisions of other chief justices, hence "those of" is required. So between C and D, I choose C for ||ism.

For correct comparison purposes we need to use Other in the answer option to draw the comparison clearly. Option C does it nicely and IMO is the answer.
