Solution

The correct option is C Electrostatic force
The force between two charged bodies is called electrostatic force. Like charges repel each other and unlike charges attract each other. Electrostatic force is responsible for clinging of synthetic fibre clothes to our skin. When these fibres rub with each other, they attain charges. When these fibres come in contact with our skin, they attract opposite charges present in our body, sticking to our skin. This phenomenon occurs mostly in winters when the humidity is low.
