Solution

## The correct option is B Circular motion When the body moves in a circular path with respect to time, it is known as circular motion. The pencil fitted in the compass which is used to draw the circle moves in a circular path and hence it is a circular motion. When the body moves about its own axis, it is known as rotational motion. When the body moves in a straight line with respect to time, it is known as linear motion.
