B is the correct answer.

No, C is the correct answer because of velocity decrease in the moving blade.

The blade of moving blade is not symmetric as in impulse turbine it is in aerofoil type, so when steam pass through moving blade c/s became slightly decreases so by giving momentum of steam the velocity decreases and also pressure will decreases.
