Solution

The correct option is C Law ensures people's religious and social rights absolutely and unconditionally
Option (3) is not implied in the passage, as not unconditionally means without any condition; whereas there is a condition that these rights should not conflict with the rights of others. In that case, the law can't ensure that people enjoy that right.
