Correct option is C)

When a plural noun is a proper name for a singular object or collective unit, a singular verb is used and vice versa. In the given sentence, 'Statistics' is denoted as a singular object. 
'Show that the' is the plural form of the verb. It should be replaced with the singular form of the verb 'shows that the'. Options A and B are correctly used. 
Thus, option C is the correct answer.
