Step 1: providing...helping...establishing... llism

Step 2: between C/D, (C) correctly uses the possessive apostrophe here.

Ex: The children`s funds. vs The players` salaries.

For any clarification about apostrophes, I recommend the following site:

b/w C and D... others are out for not ||sm

C uses possessive correctly, so it's the answer
