C. Repousse workers, who do a method of sculpture by laying copper sheets over wooden molds, use a variety of exotic hammers, and then pounding the metal into shape.

B is perfectly fine and workers has been removed because of ellipsis..
In normal scenario, the sentence would be..

"Response is method" doesn't make sense. Where is the a? "Response is A method"

I go with D

That confused me as well. Can someone explain why the missing "a" isn't a point?

Seems like this is another typo. I went with B as well despite the lack of an "a", however now that you mention it I feel like it should be there.
