Not much difference, but you need a noun to fill in the blank, so c) is the correct form, the gerund.

Upbringing is the noun form. Bring up is the verb form. They both refer to the same thing, but you have to use the one required by the grammar of the sentence. In this case the noun form is correct.

What is the reason behind of using noun?

on your early _____ starts with a preposition (on). So we know that a noun phrase will follow to form a prepositional phrase.

Also, because of this, your early _____ is a noun phrase. It starts with a determiner (your), which is the sign that a noun should be coming up soon. Then we have an adjective (early), which is another sign that a noun will follow.

If you follow all these clues, it's obvious that the blank must contain a noun.
