  • Correct Answer
    Choice (C)

Detailed Solution

As the sentence starts off with "Denouncing it...", the clause that follows has to first refer to who denounced it- in this case, it is the critics.

Option B is not correct, as it implies critics impose draconian limits on the activities of trade unions.

The pronoun "which" after the "Lobbying Act" in option C clarifies that it is the Act that limits the activities of the trade unions.

Correct Answer: C
