IMO, Ans is C.

'Than' should be connected to 'better' and must stay within the comma.

Must be (C)

cash grants------------are ( Plural Subject Requires plural verb) { Options A & E out }

As x as Y is correct idiomatic and parallel usage hence (B) is out.

New research suggests that cash grants to the poor are as good as, if not better than, many traditional forms of aid when it comes to reducing poverty.

Check using option (D) error is easily recognisable -

New research suggests that cash grants to the poor are as good as, if not better, than many traditional forms of aid when it comes to reducing poverty.

Hence COrrect Answer has to be (C)
