C. the crowning of the protestant William III and his wife, Mary II, as joint rulers of England

Answer B: The event in English history called Restoration featured Charles II’s return to England in 1660, following his exile in France. It further entailed his subsequent coronation to the English Monarch after Oliver Cromwell’s Commonwealth. Besides, Restoration meant that Bishops would be restored to Parliament, which created strict Anglican orthodoxy different from the republican government that was earlier adopted.
