Participle modifiers are placed correctly and the meaning is conveyed succinctly.

C. falls and create jobs at companies that sell their products abroad and helping

The original sentence has modifier error as "creates jobs at companies..." should modify "Russian exports"

A. falls and creates jobs at companies that sell their products abroad and helps -----modifier error

B. falls, creates jobs at companies that sell their products abroad, and helps to -----modifier error

C. falls and create jobs at companies that sell their products abroad and helping -----modifier error

D. falls, creating jobs at companies that sell their products abroad and helping------Correct. it rectifies the modifier error by inserting "," after "falls" and rephrasing the sentence as "creating jobs at companies that..." "and helping..."

E. falls, creating jobs at companies that sell their products abroad, but it would help to ------"but it would help to" is incorrect here. there is no contrast so "but" should not be used also "it" is ambiguous

In theory, Russian exports should increase as the ruble falls and creates jobs at companies that sell their products abroad and helps counteract the effects of an economic slowdown.

A corollary function such as the creation of jobs or helping to counteract cannot be equated with the main function of ruble falling by marking both of them with finite verb forms. The corollary should be only expressed in a modifier.

A. falls and creates jobs at companies that sell their products abroad and helps -- 1. corollaries equated with the main verb 2. the and after falls spoils list parallelism.

B. falls, creates jobs at companies that sell their products abroad, and helps to --- same corollary error as in A.

C. falls and create jobs at companies that sell their products abroad and helping -- the modifier 'helping' cannot be joined with fanboys.

D. falls, creating jobs at companies that sell their products abroad and helping -- correct choice

E. falls, creating jobs at companies that sell their products abroad, but it would help to -- the IC started with 'but' spoils the parallelism of modifiers.

C is the correct answer

The only answer choice that uses the modifier sentence correctly and in a parallel structure
