In a public-key encryption system,Basically any person can do the task of encryption using public key of receiver .

When receiver receive its cipher text ,then only he has private therefore only he can decrypt the CT and convert into PT(Plain text).

Therefore sender can be any one please but receiver will be one that is receiver.

Therefore best option will C.
