Is the option B correct? Raising, lowering and surge does not maintain parallelism.
Please correct me if I am wrong.

Thank you in advance,

I got this question right just by using pure parallelism concepts. But from the meaning prospective, Choice c also looks good.

Please explain why C is wrong? Just because it lacks parallelism?

Yes, your understanding is correct - a simple gerund ("lowering") cannot be parallel to a complex gerund ("raising").
