Initially all having $6$ balls that is:

Neelu=6,pavitra=6,sinthia=6,pallavi=6, madhvi=6

  1. Neelu $\xrightarrow{-3}$ Pallavi $\implies$ Nellu=3, Pallavi=9
  2. Pallavi $\xrightarrow{-2}$ Pavitra,Pallavi $\xrightarrow{-2}$ Madhvi$\implies$ Pallavi=5, Madhvi=8,Pavitra=8
  3. Sinthia$\xrightarrow{-4}$ Nellu $\implies$ Nellu=7,Sinthia=2
  4. Nellu $\xrightarrow{-3}$ Pavitra, Nellu $\xrightarrow{-3}$ Madhvi $\implies$ Nellu=1,Pavitra=11,Madhvi=11
  5. Pavitra $\xrightarrow{-5}$ Sinthia    $\implies$ Pavitra=6,Sinthia=7
  6. Madhvi $\xrightarrow{-4}$ Pallvai $\implies$ Madhiv=7, Pallavi=9
Nellu Pavitra Sinthia Pallavi Madhvi
1 6 7 9 7

$\therefore$ Neelu has least number of balls.

Option $(C)$ is correct.
