In D "council" is not same as counsel.
The rest have pronoun errors. Anyone must complemented with him/her. People must be complemented with them.

Are these really 700+ questions? I seriously doubt it. They also don't seem to be GMAT styled.

I think it is basically a Idioms Question. I am confused between C and D.

Not an idiom question but a vocabulary question. Which is why I dont think this is a GMAT styled question.

Council : A group of people who come together to make a decision
Counsel: A Lawyer or a legal representative

Hey faltan, Anyone is singular and themselves are plural. Subject-Verb error.
Hence it should be people (Plural) and themselves (plural)
