I think option C is correct.

Supriya Rajgopal said: (Sep 5, 2011)  
If its C, then option C will have to be 'The man told that he did not CONFER guilt'.

I think the answer can b either A or B.

Tanisha said: (Dec 16, 2011)  
Going by the tense used it should be C. The extra 's' in confers is just that-extra.

Aman said: (Aug 25, 2012)  
Where's the emphatic (emphasis) part in the speech?

Jalees said: (Sep 21, 2012)  
It is like:.

He said, "Hurrah! India has won the Sahara Cup".

Then we say.
He exclaimed with joy that India had won the Sahara Cup.

Therefore there is an emphatic situation. So, option A is correct.

Shruthi M N said: (Sep 3, 2013)  
Where is emphatic situation?

Archana said: (Feb 5, 2014)  
Why not stubborn?

Sajid said: (Aug 16, 2014)  
Because of the word 'NO' the sentence become forceful and so emphatic is used.

But he refuses to confess his guilt so he is stubborn.

Vipul said: (Mar 22, 2018)  
If it is "NO, I refuge to confer guilt.

Then option A is correct (refused makes no sense here).

Niveditha K M said: (Mar 27, 2018)  
To confers? or to confer?

I think the question is incorrect.

A.Kirpal said: (Apr 18, 2020)  
Here, The word 'no' has emphasized the whole sentence.

Prabu said: (Aug 1, 2020)  
I think it is to 'confess' instead of 'confers'.

Correct me, if I am wrong.
