    C. Infract users.

    Explanation
    Moderators have the ability to edit individual posts, put in for a ban request, infract users, and infract forum captains. They can also close threads outside of their forum. This means that moderators have the authority to make changes to posts, take action against users who violate the forum rules, and maintain the order and organization of the forum by closing threads. However, they do not have the same level of power as Megas or Admins.
