Cannot decide between "B" & "C".

What is the OA??? And can someone please post a brief explaination.

C for me

B is perfectly parallel, but it suffers from other problems such as

"it" in B is ambigous without a clear referent

and "to do so" doesnt refer to any action mentioned earlier

to me C is correct as it shows the contrast by using "or else"

whats the OA?
