Why does the radiation C deflect more than A?

Solution: Radiation C is an electron beam whereas radiation A is an alpha particle beam. Since electron has very less mass as compared to alpha particle, so electron experience more force towards the plate than alpha particle and thus electron (i.e. radiation C) deflects more than alpha particle (i.e. radiation A).
