Solution

The correct option is C Hydrochloric acid
Hydrochloric acid is the primary digestive acid and has several roles in digestion. It helps to ease the digestion process. Excess of hydrochloric acid increases acidity in our stomach which leads to indigestion. We can neutralise its effect by intake of antacids like milk of magnesia.
