"grounds for" is CORRECT Idiom
Often used in the plural: grounds for suspicion; a ground for divorce.

C is correct since it should be "grounds for" - "grounds to" is the wrong idiom.

But I can see "grounds to" as a contender on several sources like:
http://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/bedsheets

Though these are not specifically stated as idioms at these sources, but the sources are gullible.

http://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/grounds - This link doesnt show any idiom like grounds to . so we can safely avoid B and the correct idiom should be grounds for .

"Grounds to" is not a correct idiom, so we can eliminate A and B. "Grounds for" is idiomatically correct. Although "grounds that" can be correct, when it's negated ("no grounds"), the correct idiom is "no grounds for." So C is the correct answer choice.

So the only reason for choosing answer C is the idiom "grounds for".
Can we conclude that "grounds to" is incorrect?
