No, according to me A is the right answer.

Pratiksha Chavan said: (Oct 12, 2017)  
It's both shear modulus and modulus of rigidity.

Nugis said: (Aug 26, 2019)  
It will be Modulus of elasticity.

Vinay said: (Nov 6, 2019)  
Both B and C are correct answers.

In materials science, shear modulus or modulus of rigidity, denoted by G, or sometimes S or μ, is defined as the ratio of shear stress to the shear strain: The derived SI unit of shear modulus is the pascal (Pa), although it is usually expressed in gigapascals (GPa) or in thousands of pounds per square inch (ksi).

Option D is the correct i.e. modulus of elasticity.
