Could not find out any difference between 'discriminate from' and 'discriminate between'. Both are correct.
if somebody finds something, please share.

My opinion is that you can discriminate A from B and you cannot discriminate between A and B.

Here is what the dictionary says:
Discriminate = "To perceive the distinguishing features of; recognize as distinct: discriminate right from wrong"
Distinguish= "To perceive or indicate differences; discriminate: distinguish between right and wrong"

Moni77 has pointed out the rule for the usage of from and between as follows:

Discriminate = "To perceive the distinguishing features of; recognize as distinct: discriminate right from wrong"
Distinguish= "To perceive or indicate differences; discriminate: distinguish between right and wrong"

if the OA is indeed C, then that rule doesnt quite work...
