Solution

The correct option is C Polyvinyl chloride
Materials used to make pipes should be water resistant, light weight and shouldn't bend or break easily due to the weight of water passing through it. PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is used to make water pipes, raincoats, etc because it possesses all these properties. Moreover, it is a thermoplastic which means it can be moulded into different shapes on heating.
