I think there is a problem in OA.

As per my knowledge, if we are talking about future in the past, we should use "would".

Since this sentence is talking about "viewed" (past tense), it cannot be "will".

I selected C looking at "will/would" issue.

Bad source, bad question. Only Official Source or Manhattan is the best.

Official Explanation

Without getting involved in the intricacies of the subjunctive, because the refusal is not a certainty, to express the doubt we require the “would.” Every other choice is wrong because it does not capture the element of doubt expressed by the phrase “out of fear that.”
