Solution

The correct option is C Seismonasty
A response of a plant, that causes movement independent of the direction of the stimulus is a nastic response. It is not a growth response, is reversible, and can be repeated many times. 
Seismonasty is a nastic movement in response to shock, especially the rapid folding of the leaflets of the sensitive plant due to changes in turgor pressure, caused by vibration, example- Mimosa pudica.
