collects means get ------ a collect call.
gathers means assemble --- gather some stones.

Why not D?

It is English proverb.

The meaning is " A person who does not settle in one place will not accumulate wealth or status, or responsibilities or commitments".

We generally collect information but a stone gathers moss (avalanche). Also, accumulates is not correct because we use it scenarios when the object is still (stone accumulates dust over time). Thus collects is the answer.

A rolling stone gathers no moss is an old proverb, so option C is correct.
