C.

"aid" requires direct object. Hence, "for" is not required. Apart from this issue, A is ok. C addresses this issue in A.

Eating saltwater fish may significantly reduce the risk of heart attacks and also aid for sufferers of rheumatoid arthritis and asthma, according to three research studies published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

In the current sentence "AID" is used as an synonymous for "HELP".
The correct usage will be "aid sufferers of arthritis and asthma"

"Aid for", "Aid to" are INCORRECT
Also remember "reduce" and "aid" should be parallel


(A) significantly reduce the risk of heart attacks and also aid for
(B) be significant in reducing the risk of heart attacks and aid for
(C) significantly reduce the risk of heart attacks and aid
(D) cause a significant reduction in the risk of heart attacks and aid to
(E) significantly reduce the risk of heart attacks as well as aiding

ANSWER IS C
