Dear Rohan,

Could you kindly share the source of this question.

My two cents on this question.
Option C is absolutely INCORRECT. Even use of WHEN in non-underlined portion is INCORRECT as per GMAT

OA (option C) conveys the following meaning:

Firms are known to have made large number of buybacks and purchases at technology stocks ("at which"). The Colorado trading community invested into these technology stocks and while doing so paid a huge premium.
