C. loom, which used the power of water to perform the shedding, picking, and battening actions of weaving, and made possible all usage of spun threads so that they increased

Error in C :
- "which used the power of water to perform the shedding, picking, and battening actions of weaving" acts as a modifier of power loom.
- Then we have "and made" that doesn't have any verb before AND.
