But the meaning of DEFENCE is also PROTECTION FROM HARM then why it is not a correct answer.

Defence is supposed to be a right answer, verb and noun don't matter.

Nishit said: (Aug 10, 2014)  
Rescue = Saving someone from harm.
Help = To aid someone.
Defense = Protection against harm.
Defend = To prevent someone from being harmed.

In this context, Help is more accurate than Defense. If the option was DEFEND instead of DEFENSE, then that could have been the answer.
