Based on polarity, Phenylalanine is a non-polar amino acid. Whereas, Tyrosine and Tryptophan are polar amino acids. That's why option C be the answer.

Alanine, Leucine.and Valine are all non polar and aliphatic.
Arginine, histidine and lysine are positively charged.
Phenylalanine, tryptophan and tyrosine are aromatic.
The last options do not relate.
