Solution

The correct option is C

Physical change


Physical change: In a physical change no new substance is formed and the chemical composition of substance remains the same.

Playing clay undergoes a physical change when it is moulded into a caterpillar as the chemical composition of the caterpillar is same as that of playing clay and no new substance is formed.

No new substances are formed in this so it is not a chemical change.
This change is made by human effort so it is not a natural change but a man-made change.
The moulded caterpillar of clay can again be brought back to initial state and hence it is a reversible change.
