Do we know that the order of the reactant C is zero because when experiment 1 is compared to experiment 4, the increase in reactants does not influence the rate?

the ratio of the rates is one and when you change the concentrations the only exponent that will also give 1 as a result would be zero.

Well the solution is is that it must equal 1 so that means that the only value that will yield you 1 is if you put 0 as the exponent and therefore the order is 0 and does not play a role in finding the order of the other reactions. Any value to the power of 0 is 1.
