The correct answer is
C.Because the Soviet Union had troops supporting a Communist government that went against local traditions

The soviets sent troops to help a local government of socialists and communists to rule the country. The Mujahadeen were religious and wanted to stop this so they took help from the United States who didn’t want more countries to become communist satellite states for the Soviet Union.
