Imo C.
Since it's an eternal state, so it should be in present tense.

...they have a system that kept them from...

Since this is a universally true statement . Simple Present tense verb should be used. Kept incorrectly means that the system doesnt prevails now.

option D is correct

D. that keeps

"Plants in the Arctic region can survive under extreme conditions because they have a system that kept them from freezing."
As it is a universal truth, we need to simple tense and only option D uses it.
Correct choice is D
