A. a method to protect - We need a modifier which should make logical sense as well. BOOTS & HOODS are items but not a method per se. Style of wearing these items might have been a method. Hence Incorrect.
B. as a method protecting - Same error as explained in option A. Hence Incorrect.
C. protecting - Correct
D. as a protection of - Comma before AS leads to a Run-on. Hence Incorrect
E. to protect - Comma before TO leads to a Run-on. Hence Incorrect
