B.

an indefinite artice 'a' is required in the list and 'of' and 'of' in the first item following lowering further preserves parallelism.

In C, along with breaks the parallelism.

B..."a large drop...a lowering of fears" is parallel. I eliminated C mostly because it adds the unnecessary "along with".

I have a question about the bolded portion. I recognize that B is the OA. But here is my question:
Why do you need a "of" before fears.
Isnt the base stem of parallelism the following:
lowering of (1) interest rates and (2) fears about inflation, a rally......

I guess AC B and the aforementioned statements both use parallelism correctly? No? You could include the preposition either as a part of the base stem (as the bolded portion does) or include it within each parallel element as AC B does?
