Solution

The correct option is C
Honey

The drag on a body inside a fluid depends on:
(i) Speed of the moving body
(ii) Nature of the medium
(iii) The shape of the moving body

If the medium is more dense, it will apply more drag on the moving body. Since, honey is more dense as compared to water, air, or vacuum, the body will experience maximum drag in honey.
