Hint: The rise of Hitler’s power began in Germany in September 1990 when he joined the political party then known as German workers party which is commonly known as the Nazi party. The period of 1924 to 1933 of Hitler's power and his party marked the rise from small and violent to the largest elected party.

Complete answer: During the period of 1923-25 Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party led the coalition to overthrow the existing government of Bavaria and initiated a national revolution. However, Hitler and others were arrested for treason. Hitler was convicted and sentenced to five years of imprisonment although he served only one.
In 1929 under Erich Ludendorff represented the Nazi party in the presidential elections however they only gained 1.1 % of votes in the same year the German referendum of 1929 was released as it gained the Nazi Party recognition and credibility it never had before. In 1932 the Reichstag elections were won by the Nazi party with 230 seats however the elections were called by Von Papen to try to win a majority in parliament and eventually with the series of events, finally on January 30, 1933, the Nazi party comes to power and Hitler became the chancellor. On March 23, 1933, following the burning of the German parliament building the parliament passed the enabling act which allowed Hitler to come to power without obtaining parliamentary consent. This act effectively establishes the beginning of dictatorship under Hitler. Hitler's emergence as the chancellor of the crucial turning point in Germany. The population admired him and his plans and policies to make Germany a powerful, unified and one-party state. Under his rule the economy of Nazi Germany boosted and he became the largest ruler.
Therefore, option C is correct.

Note: The SA or storm troopers formed in 1921 was a military organisation of the Nazi party under Hitler. It helped and played an important role in increasing the popularity of the Nazis. While in prison he wrote the infamous book Mein Kampf or My struggles, in this book he wrote down his components of Nazism and its racial ideology.
