Breach of Commitment Contract

So I've been having a very difficult time in one of my classes at school, and have a C+. The other classes I have As & Bs.
I read the contract details, but I didn't see a specific letter grade or anything specified for them to cancel my acceptance to Smith. Could someone please tell me if a C+ is enough for them to rescind my offer of admission? I'd appreciate the input because I'm currently splitting hairs over this.

Here are the conditions, copy pasted for reference:
Please note: your enrollment at Smith College is not complete until you follow the instructions related to your enrollment deposit and confirm the conditions of your admission offer.
Conditions: Smith reserves the right to withdraw its offer of admission under the following conditions: (a) in the event any part of your application contains misrepresentations; (b) if you fail to graduate and receive a diploma by the end of the current school year; (c) if you show a significant drop in your academic performance between now and your graduation from school; (d) if your academic program has changed since your application was submitted; (e) if you engage in behavior that brings into question your honesty, maturity or moral character; or (f) if you are holding a place in the class of more than one college. Selecting the button below indicates that you are committed to attending Smith and that you have not accepted an offer of admission from any other college.

    I would seriously doubt one C+ would cause any issue. I don't know for certain though. Reach out to admissions maybe?

    For current Smith students, the requirement is to maintain a GPA at or above 2.0 to remain in good academic standing. You are well above that, even in your problem class, so I'd hope it would be fine. Do call and ask if it is stressing you too much--worrying will not help your grade (and could do the opposite) Good luck!

    My sophomore Smithie had a C in her last semester of high school -- first grade ever below a B. Ironically, she got the lower grade because of an assignment she missed while visiting Smith for Accepted Students day. Regardless, nothing was ever even mentioned about it. You can probably relax.
