I wonder how can one expect to reason Idiom questions? I don't think reasoning can be done for each and every idiom question but logic can be looked at.

Pls explain. I honestly consider both A and C plausible options. Lacking in/Lack of are both idiomatic. Just motivate why C is wrong.

For idiom questions, don't look for reasoning every time. Some are taken to be granted as per rules of english and rules of GMAT.
