Correct option is C)

The first line "In this life, there are no gains without pains." means that without pain or suffering, you don't really gain/achieve much. Achieving something without hard work is no achievement at all. This is mentioned in option C, man does not achieve anything unless he works hard/suffers to achieve it. Hence C is correct.
Option A has a completely different meaning from the sentence. It means that hard work is not fruitful as it ends in suffering or pain whereas the sentence means that pain/struggle is fruitful in the form of rewards. The pain and suffering itself is a manifestation of the hard labour. Hence A is incorrect.
Similarly, option B is also incorrect, it refers to a negative result whereas the quoted line refers to a positive thought: that without pain, there is no achievement. If you want to achieve/gain, you must deal with the pain.
Option D is also incorrect because it does not provide the meaning of the sentence. It has a completely different meaning from the first sentence.
