Correct option is C)

The proverb, 'Haste makes waste' is used to say that doing something hastily could cause errors. This, in turn, would result in time, effort and resources being wasted.  Hence, the word, 'waste' completes the given proverb meaningfully and option C is correct.
The other words, 'fast', 'benefit' and 'profit' do not complete the proverb meaningfully. Hence, options A, B and D are incorrect.
