Correct answer is option "B" The cutting-plane line cuts halfway through the part and removes one quarter of the material.

Yes, the correct option is C.

Option B is correct one because when we pass cutting plane alone center line then the section that we see is full section in drawing terms. And if we cut 1/4 part of material then that will be half section of that material. So option B is the right one.
