Solution

The correct option is B Vitamin B1 Scurvy
Deficiency of vitamin B1 or thiamine can cause a disease called beriberi, which results in weak muscles and severe loss of weight. Severe deficiency can cause paralysis and cardiac failure. On the other hand, deficiency of vitamin C can cause scurvy, a disease that leads to the bleeding of gums, skin spots and swelling of joints.
