Option A - Incorrect
This is wrong because of the incorrect usage of 'both'.

Option B - Incorrect
This option is incorrect because it distorts the message the sentence is passing across.

Option C - Correct
This is stylistically preferable in the sense that it conveys the author's idea of who she wants to visit, and it is the only answer completely free of mistakes. This option contrasts 'from which' with 'to which', creating a balance in the sentence.

Option D - Incorrect
In most sentence correction questions, the adverb 'where' is preferably used when the place is where the action is being performed but in this option, the action 'going' is not performed at the place.

Option E - Incorrect
This has an incorrect order of 'wants' and 'both'. The verb 'wants' is the only main verb, so the correct construction should have been 'wants both'.
