AshutoshB, most of your reasoning is correct. However, don't you think parallelism is vioated in option C ?

I feel (B) is the better answer, since a conjunction is required only between the last two points(as given in option B).
What are your thoughts?

here is OE from Magoosh,
I am happy to respond to you

2) The three elements that will be increased need to be in parallel. The first two, “police databases” and “funding for neighborhood watch groups” are before the underline section. The third element, ” programs to rehabilitate at-risk youth,” has to have the word “and” in front of it because it’s the last element on the list. Also, the action of decreasing has to be separate from this list. Choices (A) & (B) treat the action of decreasing as another element on the list, which is incorrect. Choices (D) & (E) introduce a separate verb for the third element on the list, disrupting the parallelism. Only (C) gets all of this correct.

BTW, notice: to show purpose, the construction “programs for rehabilitating” is awkward — this is what (A) & (D) have. What we need is the infinitive of purpose, “programs to rehabilitate.”

For all these reasons, (C) is the only possible answer.

For the post of the other member, I do not know about his assumption.
