Answer: Option C

Explanation:

Astronomers have discovered a rare kind of space object. It is described as something between an asteroid and a comet. The object has been called an active asteroid. The celestial body was first noticed by the astronomers in June 2019 when the University of Hawaii's Asteroid Terrestrial-impact Last Alert System (ATLAS) detected a faint new signal that appeared to be an asteroid in the Trojan group. The specialty of 2019 LD2 special is that the active asteroid shares Jupiter's orbit in an asteroid swarm known as the Jupiter Trojans.
