Allowances and memberships are examples here and thus, "such as" is the correct usage.

Thus, B or C.

In option C, "those in" changes the meaning.

B it is.

we are not comparing anything is this statement...we are just listing down what areas of salary were cuts made from...so best is to use "such as" which is present in B's construction hence B is the answer.
