IMHO, it's C.

Th verb should be provide, as the the verb refers to the renewal project, not the population. Eliminate A, D & E.

Between B & C, I think the word population is singular in the context of this sentence, which makes B use wrong verbs.

OA is C but I had a query.

Renewal project is singular.

I was thinking of another example.

The man will build a castle and also provide for his children.

It clearly sounds like it should be provide. Should the rule not be "one man" provides for his children. Does "the" change things.

If anybody has further clarity on this rule - would really appreciate it.

In this case ==> (will) is implicit => so actually it is parallel

will build ==> (will) provide

'The' in the 'the man' => doesn't change anything.

Of course and "will" + verb ss infinitive and therefore insists on plural.

note: be aware when will is there for parallelism
