Solution

The correct option is A True
Lenz's law states that the induced current will appear in such a direction that it opposes the change in the flux in the coil. In the above case, to oppose the change in flux induced current will appear in clock wise direction i.e. north pole of the bar magnet would be facing the south pole of the metal ring.
