Best answer
famine is acute shortage of food and as per the sentence we require a word meaning "reduction in food output."

"aberration" means sharp change -- not necessarily a reduction.

"weakening" and "deterioration" must be followed by "of" than "in".

"decline" perfectly fits here.

Correct Option: C.
