I think A.
"which" refers to a noun here (can someone confirm?) and you want to use from X to Y in this sentence. C is not right because you need a noun to refer back to techniques to clarify the meaning.

"is" is clearly wrong in A

Good point, then the answer must be C.

IMO answer is C.

FLIP!! the sentence. We have to understand that X, Y and Z are added to something. Even if we flip the sentence - To something are added X, Y and Z.

Eg. There is 2 people standing on the bus stand- This is completely wrong. Correct Answer is There ARE 2 people standing on Bus stand. ( In the original sentence isntead of THERE prepostion we are using TO WHICH)
