Solution

The correct option is C Night blindness
The deficiency of vitamin A or retinol causes night blindness. Vitamin A is important in the vision as it is a part of visual pigment and maintains the epithelium and prevents the keratinization of the epithelium. Vitamin A is made up of beta carotene which is an important antioxidant. By consuming butter, mango and oranges, carrot and yellow and green vegetables vitamin A deficiency can be compensated.
Hence, the correct answer is 'Night blindness'
