Solution

The correct option is C They use their bodies to confuse enemies.
  • Polar bears have white fur so that they can camouflage (a phenomenon to confuse predators) into their environment. Their coat is so well camouflaged in Arctic environments that it can sometimes pass as a snowdrift.
  • The leaf insect exhibits mimicry where it resembles an unrelated species of organism (plant leaf) to save itself from predation.
So, the correct answer is option B.
