I am not opposing this answer but option C is also correct.

Atheist means a person who does not beleive in God & His existance, so if in exam we will put tick on C which is correct will be count as wrong answer.

So please clear differntiat both of or put only one correct ans for ticking.

Which is right ? Atheist or agnostic.

Shri Bhagwan said: (Sep 1, 2013)  
Agnostic:-A person who believes that nothing is known or can be known of the existence or nature of God or of anything beyond material phenomena.

Atheism is, in a broad sense, the rejection of belief in the existence of deities. [1][2] In a narrower sense, atheism is specifically the position that there are no deities.

So I believe that Agnostic is correct answer.

An agnostic is one who believes it impossible to know anything about God or about the creation of the universe and refrains from commitment to any religious doctrine.

An atheist is one who denies the existence of a deity or of divine beings.

Anyone explain it clearly.

@Garima Gupta.

A person not sure of existence and doesn't believe in God's existence are two different things.
