Inspite of knowing 'rather than' is preferred. I went for looking at the meaning where 'chosen' is mentioned. It means a choice is made instead of something else. Hence, I selected C. What is wrong with this line of reasoning? And 'Rather than' is known to show preference and 'instead of' for replacement. 'chosen' is the key word based on which I chose C as my answer.
