My dear young colleague Bishal

If you want good responses to your queries, please make the life of the responders simple by providing the actual verbatim text of the example and please also provide why you think what is given is correct or wrong.

This will show that you have already deliberated on the issue. Nobody likes to respond to a casual dabbler.

This is just a suggestion.

In the given case, you will do well to produce the actual choice A and explain why you think A is correct when GMAT says that it is wrong.

Now on to your query:

The reduced phrase 'if affordable' has been placed in the middle of the sentence. Such middle phrases modify the proximate noun, those just in front. In this case, it absurdly modifies the noun in front "lifetime". The actually modified noun is the 'Muslims', which actually is the object of the preposition 'of'.

The actual subject of the clause is the substantive phrase
"Making the pilgrimage to Mecca at least once in a lifetime" and the verb is the singular 'is'.

In C, the subordinate clause 'if they can afford it' makes it clear that it is the Muslims who are the referent of the pronoun' they" and it refers to the pilgrimage.
