  1. C is probably the best answer. D could also be correct if people remember that infinitives and gerunds are verb forms being used as nouns, but overall, I think C is best among these.

  2. My word! Where on earth did you get this convoluted question? It's one of the most awkward examples of the English language I've ever seen!

    C. is correct.

    However, D is also correct considering that phrases and clauses used as a subject are also considered nouns.

  3. Thanks so much for the help!
