C is right
Maintain and continue are redundant...Maintain implies continue

D. "help to maintain and continue" - is wordy because Maintain implies continuation.

"C" from my side. Whats OA?

C is the winner here.

help to > help > help in.

C and D remain. D has serious redundancy (maintain and continue). C wins.
