I dont see a from result of any where in the choices.

Only A is correct. All other choices have issues with parallelism

Orignal setences says..
A) the city allocated $150 million to cover increase in wages. --(it covers only increased part.. not full salary)

B, C are out --> distorts the orignal meaning.
cover increased wages -- distorts the meaning. --> it covers all wages.. (not the increased part)
D --> Distorts the meaning.
expected to approve with labor unions.. --> orignal sentence says it expected to be approve as a result of neations with labor unions..-
E) looks awakard too
