      A Sparrow

    • B.

      A Hawk

    • C.

      A Tailor Bird

      An Ostrich

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    In Rudyard Kipling's story "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi", Darzee is portrayed as a helpful character who assists Rikki. The story does not mention Darzee being a hawk or an ostrich, and since Darzee is described as singing and nesting in a bush, it is most likely that Darzee is a tailor bird. Tailor birds are known for their ability to sew leaves together to create nests, which aligns with Darzee's behavior in the story. Therefore, the correct answer is A Tailor Bird.
