Final Answer :
C
Explanation :
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) have shown to be beneficial in reducing repetitive behaviors and aggression, and improving social interactions in some individuals with ASD, particularly those with higher levels of anxiety. Haldol and lithium are not typically used to treat ASD, and monoamine oxidase inhibitors have not been well studied in relation to ASD.
