Correct! "to" is grammatically incorrect here. But, tell me one thing. Whose property is "to" here? "ordered to" or "to the students"? All, I am worried is whether that underline of II & III will be clearly visible in the question paper to see clearly which line the "to" is lying on. So that there will be no ambiguity.

B) II

The correct phrase is ordered.

This link explains the correct use of the verb order.

It is given ordered  itself.  What is the mistake in given sentence then  ?

@dq ordered to is wrong.
"to" is implied in the word "ordered". So, correct sentence will be

The professor ordered the students to go out of the class.
