Although the island is fairly secure, one should not attempt to explore it on one's own; the travel company will not be held responsible for injuries you incur outside the facilities provided for you.

The non underlined part uses 'you'. So we must stick to 'you'
Contenders: C D E
Correct idiom - attempt to . Thus, C is the correct answer
