Look at the first paragraph at this site:
(Broken Link Removed)
The only one that even maybe would fit would be C.
Are you sure they said proponents?

Organized crime didn't get into selling alcohol until after the Prohbition Amendment passed.
I vote for C. The main proponents of prohibition were women and churches. The three presidents weren't "the staunchest supporters."
