The question tests a simple comparison structure "Iran has X and Y". Only answer choice C correctly compares "fourth-largest oil reserves" and "second-largest natural gas reserves".

A. The use of the restrictive modifier that is incorrect since there is only one Iran in the world and this fact - that it has the world's fourth-largest oil reserves - applies to all of Iran. So the non restrictive modifier which should be used instead.
