None of the cut wires look like the right ones, is one of them Red with a Light Blue stripe?
What color is the wire at the starter solenoid?
Should be Red with a Light Blue stripe


In upper right of picture you can see the clutch switch and its wires
The Red/blue stripe wire on the lower end of connector comes from ignition switch and should have 12volts when key is turned to START
The Pink wire right next to it should run out to the starter solenoid, but..................it changes to a red/blue stripe wire at the firewall

So
Ignition switch-----(red/blue)--------clutch switch----------(pink)------------------/---------(red/blue)----------------------starter solenoid


Pull that clutch switch connector off the switch, put a jumper wire between red/blue and pink wires, turn key to START, if it starts then clutch pedal switch is bad.
If it doesn't start then test red/blue wire with volt meter, it should have 12v with key in START position
If it doesn't then you will need a new ignition switch, under the steering column
