I would start with googling the meanings of "gerrymandering" and "census" to get some clue. Then substitute each word into the question to find which one makes the most logical sense. No matter the outcome, you'll find your answer.
"Gerrymandering is the practice of drawing district lines to achieve political gain for legislators. The practice of gerrymandering involves the manipulation of district drawing in aims to leave out, or include, specific populations in a legislator's district to ensure his/her reelection".- Wikipidia
Based on this information I would say that combined with the context of the sentence above the correct answer is A. Hope this helps:)
