C: Managers always hold us responsible for that team’s work - Correct one, 'Hold' is required as we have plural in the sentence. option A negated. Now, in option B, 'their' looks incorrect, Negate this option. So among option C & D, option C looks better as in option D, use of 'always' in the end is not correct.

Option C, IMO
