The subject is 'dating' so the verb has to be the plural 'suggests', which brings us to C, D and E.

The subjunctive mood states that 'suggest' should always be followed by 'that'. Hence C is the correct answer.

first of all "suggests" due to singular subject.


brings us down to c,d n e.

D can be ignored because of the use of past perfect...as there is no -ed form of verb as ref to it.
E can be ignored because of have i.e. present perfect.it suggests that it is still ice -free.We dont know that.
Suggests should always be connected with that as explained above.

So C is the best.
