I think option D is also correct.

Option D is incorrect because the intercept rather decreases if you tilt the staff towards making it normal to the line of sight.

Why not an option D?

Staff intercept is differ between length of top and bottom crosshair in the instrument (say S1 and S3). Google "tacheometry" and just see the image you'll get everything.

RL is the Reduce Level, take when level rise and fall condition.

What is RL?

Answer is C because the staff reading will decrease.

Where am I suppose to take the reading on the staff when I want the direction CL when using a theodolite.

Intercept of staff is the distance between top and bottom staff reading.
