Heya kurien.
I found this article that should help you spot the difference between That and Which.

use 'who' to refer to people. 'that' and 'which' should mostly refer to things.

Who : for people
that : can modify the noun preceding it or can act as connector btw two clauses.
when that act as modifier there should be no comma preceding it as it serves only as essential modifer ( essesntial modifier are those which must be needed to make the clause meaningful)

which : act as non-essential modifier, can modify noun just preceding it , always preceded by comma

This question is checking two things
1st : use of that,who & which
2nd : knowledge of adjective & adverb
adjective : can modify noun & pronoun adverb : can modify anything but a noun & pronoun

In option d) corresponding is not modifying high so it's wrong option c is right
