I think C.. simple and concise.. all other choices kinda seem redundant

If we choose C the sentence would look like:

Ideally, the professional career diplomat should help maintain an effective American foreign policy despite changes in administration.

"help maintain" looks incomplete to me.

Somebody please explain why option C is correct. :(

well idiomatically speaking "to maintain" is correct but then D introduces redundancy... maintain and continue...
wht is continue.... maintain itself means continued support...
so wid go for C

Thanks Andy.

I think option B is also correct. (What do you think guys?)
But option C is more concise and succinct.

C is sweet and concise.

I think B would have been correct with "in the maintenance of"
