Imo- C
A. geomagnetic lodestones, astrolabes, first used in classical antiquity, or the sun and stars.

Incorrect-the sun and stars are not man made navigation tools

B. geomagnetic lodestones, astrolabes, which were first used in classical antiquity, or the sun and stars.

C. geomagnetic lodestones, and astrolabes, first used in classical antiquity, or if they could read the sun and stars.

D. geomagnetic lodestones, or astrolabes, first used in classical antiquity, or the reading of the sun and stars.
