    Correct Answer
    C. Feed a needy person for each day you eat.
    Explanation
    During Ramadan, fasting is an important religious practice for Muslims. However, if someone is very ill and not able to fast, they are allowed to break their fast. In this scenario, the person is in a life-threatening situation and needs to eat to survive. The answer "Feed a needy person for each day you eat" suggests that the person should compensate for not fasting by feeding a needy person for each day they are unable to fast. This is a way to fulfill their religious obligation while also taking care of their health.

Mosques are typically characterized by a dome and minaret, and they serve as important centers for Islamic education and social gatherings.
