Oil when mixed with resinous substances is called oil varnish and when sprit mixed with spirit is spirit varnish. In oil varnish, turpentine is added however.

C is right. Varnish itself consists of resin, drier and solvent. For oil varnish, oil is further added to it. And we know turpentine is a well known solvent. So the answer is resin, oil and turpentine.

Hard resins such as amber and copal are dissolved in linseed oil. If the varnish is found unworkable, a small amount of turpentine oil may be added.
