This question is worded in a very confusing way.  I assume that you are asking us to compare the situation today to the situation during the Industrial Revolution.  Then, I assume that you are asking us to say which statement about those differences is the least acceptable to a Marxist.  If that is what you are asking, the answer is C.

Marx argued that there will be a struggle of class against class for as long as capitalism exists.  He says that capitalism will always be a system in which the bourgeoisie exploits the proletariat.  Obviously, capitalism still exists today.  Since this is the case, Marx would say that class differences still exist and are still important.  Therefore, a Marxist would disagree with the statement in C.
