Solution

The correct option is C Hypothalamus - Fore brain - Controls body temperature, brings urge for eating and drinking
The hypothalamus is located below the thalamus just above the brainstem. The hypothalamus contains the thirst centre, the hunger centre and the body's thermostat. Thus damage to the hypothalamus frequently results in water, glucose and temperature imbalances.
