I'd say C) It is the deepest lake in Africa and holds the longest freshwater in the world.

A is incorrect, it spans 12,703 square miles and is not the largest in the world. B is incorrect, as Lake Tanganyika and Nigeria are 2869 km apart, and they simply don't rely on it. C is correct, as it is the deepest lake in Africa and is the longest freshwater source in the world. D is incorrect, since Lake Victoria is more than half the size of Lake Tanganyika. So the answer is C. It is the deepest lake in Africa and holds the longest freshwater in the world.
