The correct response is (C).

This sentence needs the correct idiomatic expression to contrast two problems. The news anchor “distinguished between X (student rebellions) and Y (authentic political upheaval).” The clause that describes student rebellions (“which may…) should be as clear and concise as possible. The possessive “their” is awkward and should be omitted.

C fits the best !

distinguished should be follow by "between", since one can distinguish between two entities.
hence, C is the answer.

Two idioms :
Distinguish A from B
Distinguish between A and B

B,D,E is eliminated
A-"without their being driven" does not sound good ..
C is clear and idiomatic ...

Answer is option C. Because it correctly follows the idiom form "distinguished between X and Y". Other options are not idiomatic.
