generis

Any help on this question? I couldnt understand this question at all. Just tried searching for any pronoun (with no clear antecedent) and removed the options.

Spent 30 seconds on wondering about the question structure and finally ended up choosing C. The sentence structure has two Independent clauses connected by a conjunction and a ;(semicolon). Is this construction allowed?
Also, the answer choice D starts by saying,
'by drawing his sword out'. Isn't it ambiguous with pronoun earlier in the sentence 'his'?

Option C, Changes the meaning of the sentence as if Don ignored the warning instead it appears that he ignored the warning.
And in Option D, his refers to Don without any ambiguity. Using Sancho instead of don dosent make any sense.

Please explain as C seems more logical because it says that DQ drew the sword ignoring the warning.

Also how is use of “have” correct in option D
