C isn't correct because someone could ask a question like this...
"Mom, do you want lobster, steak, or crab for dinner tonight?"
i thought the colon was (:)
well thats what google told me
WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME.
I cannot read for the life of me today!
Okay, I'm thinking of the comma.
It could be D or B in that sense then
On the contrary, C is correct. Someone can ask a question using a colon (:). For example, a daughter could ask, "Mom, which would you like to have for dinner: lobster, steak, or crab?". However, it is not the important rule this question is referring to.
Reasoning: Having a complete sentence (i.e. subject + verb) before the colon (:) is a known condition for its usage.
Otherwise, your sentences will look funky.

Thank @Cardinal_Carlo more than me.

But still @Atsie, three minds are better than one or two. You helped a bit.
Thanks for the comfort :)

It'll come to you easier and easier as you practice more. I remember I had a very hard time with grammar when I came face to face with it. Keep on studying! :) @danysanchy97
