If these are the only three answers from which you are allowed to choose, the best answer is C.  A is very clearly wrong and B is not really accurate.

The whole point of the termination policy was to terminate the "special relationship" between Native Americans and the US government.  It was meant to force Native Americans to get off their reservations (not create new ones) and assimilate into mainstream American society.  However, the termination policy did not really do anything to facilitate assimilation.  It simply forced Indians off reservations and sent them to cities to "sink or swim."  Because of this, Native Americans often ended up in impoverished conditions in slums.

Therefore, the best of the answers offered above is C.
