Javed,

lending is not parallel with increasing. Because lending is noun here and increasing is verb.

C
is the answer as lending (noun) is parallel with pressure (noun).

Hi Experts,

Can someone help me in cracking this question from meaning perspective as in how every option changes the meaning of the sentence. I know, we can crack it from Parallelism perspective, however, I would like to analyze the change in meanings.

Thanks
