1. I don't think it's b. An ideological group would be a group that bases its activities on charity, religion, or a special philosophy.

The group that focuses on policy benefits for senior citizens has only one main goal. All of its activities are focused on improving insurance benefits for a specific age group.

3. I suppose it could be D. But I think "single issue group" defines it better.
