C:The author believes that women are capable of finding a solution to the problem.
There are no underlined portions of the excerpt. However, the passage does not infer anywhere that the husbands are to blame for women being trapped in their suburban lifestyle. The author blames it on a problem with no name that exists in the women's mind and spirit. We also don't see in this part of the passage that the author is calling for a change to government policy or women to band together.

To understand what a complex sentence is, we must first understand a few concepts:
- An independent clause is a group of words that has a subject and a predicate and that conveys a complete thought, making sense on its own.
- A dependent or subordinate clause also has a subject and a predicate, but it does not convey a complete thought on its own. It requires more information, which is given by the main clause.
- A complex sentence is formed when we join an independent clause to a subordinate one. To do that, we need a subordinating conjunction, a type of word that connects the two clauses and establishes a relationship between them. Examples of subordinating conjunctions are: because, before, after, if, since, although, etc.
With that in mind, we can easily see that options 2, 4, and 5 are complex sentences. That can be identified by the use of the subordinating conjunctions "before", "when", and "if", respectively.
