    Correct Answer
    C. Blog is usually centered around one person, while wiki is many to many
    Explanation
    Blogs and wikis are both types of online platforms that allow users to create and share content. However, there is a key difference between the two. A blog is typically centered around one person, who is the main author and contributor to the content. Readers can leave comments on blog posts, allowing for interaction and discussion. On the other hand, a wiki is a collaborative platform that allows multiple users to contribute and edit content. It is not centered around one person, but rather allows for many-to-many collaboration. Therefore, the statement "Blog is usually centered around one person, while wiki is many to many" is true.
