    C. Birch bark peelings
    Explanation
    Brian tried lighting many items but was unsuccessful until he tried igniting birch bark peelings. These peelings are known to be highly flammable and are commonly used as tinder to start fires. The dry and flaky nature of the bark makes it easy to ignite, providing a good source of fuel to start a fire.
