Although I made this question wrong and picked B.
Initially I thought of C as correct but I marked it wrong because of external words "the supervising manager"
, but, later, I realized my mistake.

What could be the logic behind the incorrectness of A, B, D and E is use of passive voice and pronoun ambiguity which were removed in option C.
who made it clear is the supervising manager
what was made clear is to wait...
So C is absolutely error free option.

Good learning.

Though I picked up the right option 'C' but not very sure as to why is it the right option. Can someone please explain? Thanks!

This is a RHETORICAL Sentence. GMAT likes straight and simples sentences.
a) There is no antecedent of it.
b) GMAT doesn't like past form.
C) The sentence correctly has subject and simple present form to understand the meaning of the sentence [CORRECT]
d) same as (a)
e) "They" doesn't have any referent.
