C seems alright.

This is an example of ‘misplaced modifier’.

‘than even before’ modifies ‘ study in greater detail’, but because these two phrases are separated by too many other words, it is not clear to which words ‘than ever before’ refers.

C should be the right answer. Every other choice has either the modifier or the verb problem.
