(A) to be in sympathy with

(B) to sympathize with

(C) for sympathizing with

(D) that they should sympathize with

(E) that they should have sympathy for



They refer to --> whites or american conservatives.. D,E --> out

Between B and C for me..

grounds to decide
grounds to sympathize.. -? is it not idiomatic

any other reason to eliminate choice B.

I can not look up any idioms like "ground for" in some dictionaries such as Cambridge or Longman.
