I picked A because it indicates "to verb" as an intention.
Can anyone help me explain why is it C?

I believe it is a meaning problem

according to the discussion on beatgmatforum, this question did appear in OG 2010.
The official explanation is long, and confusing. There are alternative explanations, but many explanations discuss about additional theories of grammar. Because of all of these, I cannot remember specific explanations. Nevertheless, C is OA.

Why not "that would be turning.. " ?
