The answer is letter D. The most important thing to look for when you’re inspecting your lensatic compass is whether the dial or arrow is moving freely. A compass is a delicate instrument and should be well taken care of. It is always required to check or inspect the compass when you are using it.

A lensatic compass has three main parts: the cover which contains the lid and the sighting wire, the base which contains the floating dial with markers for East, South and West and an arrow which points to the north and the reading lens which is a moveable arm that is attached to the base of the lentic compass and serves as protection when the compass is closed or not in use.
