    Correct Answer
    C. To shut off the signal at its source.
    Explanation
    The only way to stop the signals that were enslaving the population and keeping them in a dream-like state is to shut off the signal at its source. This implies that the signals were being transmitted from a specific location or device, and by turning it off, the population would be freed from its influence. Leaving the place or killing the people responsible may not necessarily stop the signals, as they could be transmitted remotely or by other means. Therefore, shutting off the signal at its source is the most effective solution.
