aditi1903, it is parallelism and a subject verb agreement problem testing the additive concept. "And" makes the subject plural and everything else does not. So you see, in the given phrase, "as well as" additive is used. This will keep the subject in its original form. "Robots" is plural, so verb has "distribute", "shoot", "drive", "deliver" has to be plural. Eliminate A and D

In B, parallelism error: "distribute" does not agree with "drives" and "delivers"
In C, "cash distribution" in not parallel with "shoot" and "drive".
