In option C, There is no verb for the second part of the sentence
In ootion B, subordinate clause looks fine.

Both B and C sound fine to me... Does it come down to the comma and/or the wordiness of option C?

I think this is a poor-quality question and the explanation isn't clear enough, please elaborate.

The expression , 'with the exception of', is wrong. The correct phrase is, 'with the EXEMPTION of'. Therefore, 'except for', is the right use of idiom in the sentence.
