The correct sentence is "He warned her calmly that he would shoot her if she didn't keep quiet".

Calmly is used because the questions say that "he said to her in a calm voice". So, we have to include the tone of the statement to indicate the manner of saying.

There are three situation in one sentence.

1) if you don't keep quite " there is an order "
2) i shall shoot you " there is a clear action "
3) He said to her in a calm way " there is an action ".

So answer would be in a past sentence as well as in the combination of three situation. That's way answer "C" is correct.
