I would go with C.

"organism need to deal with the issue of UV rays" (X)
can be inferred from the fact that
"the very oldest sorts of organisms have protection mechanism". (Y)

i.e X can be inferred from Y.

A confuses X and Y saying that,
X implies Y

the question here is imply vs infer.

I go with C here .
A little bit of CR skills help here. the first line' In order for an organism to evolve or survive any length of time, it must learn to somehow deal with the issue of UV rays' is the conclusion . and rest of the passage i simple fact.
The first sentence conclusion is based on the rest of the passage.
thus a conclusion drawn can only 'infer' from rest of the passage and not imply.
