Public-access cable television, created in the 1970s, allows the public to broadcast over private television cables laid on public land.
A) the public to broadcast over private television cables laid - CORRECT

B) public broadcasting from the laying of private television cables
This option is incorrect because the modifier "broadcasting from the laying of ..." suggests that the public can actually produce broadcasts directly from the action of laying the cables, rather than using the cables after they are laid.

C) public broadcasts made from private television cables that were laid
This choice indicates that the "broadcasts" themselves were allowed

D) that the public can broadcast using private television cables, which are laid
Use of THAT & CAN is redundant

E) the public to broadcast because of the laying of private television
Incorrect

KUDOS
Idiom:
Allow X to do Y
Allow THAT X do Y

Public-access cable television, created in the 1970s, allows the public to broadcast over private television cables laid on public land.

A) the public to broadcast over private television cables laid
Correct. Allows X to broadcast over Z --> correct grammar structure.

B) public broadcasting from the laying of private television cables
Wrong. Allows X doing --> wrong idiom.

C) public broadcasts made from private television cables that were laid
Wrong. Allows X made (past tense) --> wrong.

D) that the public can broadcast using private television cables, which are laid
Wrong. Allows that X can do Y --> wrong.

E) the public to broadcast because of the laying of private television
Wrong. "Broadcast over cables" is correct. "broadcast because of the laying of cables" changes meaning.

Hope it helps.

Added OA, Its A. Though it seems to be straight forward question, i was confused with the intended meaning of the sentence.
Thanks for the explanation.

It was a close call for me between A and C. Can someone help me in understanding the error in C.

Below is my reasoning.
Public-access cable television, created in the 1970s, allows the public to broadcast over private television cables laid on public land.
A) the public to broadcast over private television cables laid
C) public broadcasts made from private television cables that were laid
Public-access cable television,
created in the 1970s, [mod for PCT]
allows the public broadcasts
made from private television cables [ed modifier for public broadcasts. Public broadcast that are made from priv tv cables]
that were laid on public land. [modifying cables].

IMO C is grammatically correct but differ in meaning from A. To me both options sound fine.
Regards.
