Strain Energy is Potential energy stored in the body and it will always be stored in that form unless that leads to bond breaking and plastic deformation. So, Yes, the strain energy is up to elastic limits.

Strain energy up to the elastic limit is called RESILIENCE.

There is no relation between elastic limit and strain energy. Strain energy is stored in the body due to its resistive action. It can be beyond the elastic limit.

Thanks.

The Strain energy is a type of potential energy that is stored within an object when it is deformed or strained.

Strain energy is the ability of a material to regain its shape, as per the stress-starin diagram only up to elastic limit material is elastic.

So, answer A is right.

Strain energy has nothing to do with elastic or plastic. Option A is for resilience.

Strain energy means work done by the member. It is nothing but is the internal matter.

Strain Energy-It is the ability of a material to absorb energy when it is strained
Resilience-Ability of a material to absorb energy in the elastic region when it is strained.
Proof Resilience-Maximum energy absorbing capacity of a material in the elastic region is called proof resilience.

Hence option A and B both can be correct.
