I don't see any good reason to eliminate C. Moreover, ideally there should have been "that" after "sure". The most economical construction would be:

Be sure that the one you select is the one you really know to be correct.

Option D has been changed accordingly. Now C can be eliminated on the basis that there is no "that" after "sure".

If you split C into its clauses, you get
Clause 1- Be sure the one
Clause 2- that you select is the one
Clause 3- that you really know to be correct

Whereas if you split D into its clauses, you get

Clause 1- Be sure
Clause 2- that the one you select is the one you really know to be correct

The 'that' in clause 2 of option D is modifying sure, whereas the 'that' in clause 2 of option C is modifying 'one'. This is changing the intended meaning of the sentence.
