Solution

The correct option is C Melatonin
Melatonin is a hormone secreted by pineal gland. Immediately above the optic chiasma(in the brain) in a nucleus, are present melatonin receptors that react to this hormone and synchronise the nucleus to the $$24$$hrs day/night rhythm, thus informing the brain when it is day and when it is night.
