A. significantly reduce the risk of night blindness and also help in saving money spent
saving conjugation doesnt match reduce. Not parallel

B. be significant in reducing the risk of night blindness and also helping in saving money spent
incorrect.

C. significantly reduce the risk of night blindness and also help save money spent
Correct. both reduce and save are in present simple, and both parallel.

D. cause a significant reduction in the risk of night blindness and also help in spending saved money
incorrect.

E. significantly reduce the risk of night blindness as well as helping save money spent
incorrect.

The verbs "reduce" and "saving" are not parallel. "Reduce" is parallel with "save", hence C is the correct option.
