The correct answer should be B.(Recluse)

Introvert is someone who is a shy person while Recluse is the who is self attached.

Option B & C are almost similar and both fit in.

Introvert who focuses primarily on their own mind feelings or affairs.

Recluse who lives in self-imposed isolation, a hermit.

@Dhiren is correct.

Though B & C are similar, Recluse is the better one word definition. Introverts are not self-centered, they are simply not gregarious in large group social situations. The test answer is wrong.

The answer should be B.

Introvert means unable to interact with strangers.

Recluse means to stay in solitude.

Introvert is a person who does not allow any other to share or comment on their feelings whatever the facts may be in the real world. So I agree an option C as correct answer.

Anaya said: (Oct 23, 2017)  
Introvert does not want to interact with strangers and feel that they are enough alone with themselves.

Introvert are not able to express in a group. That does not mean that they are absorbed in their own thoughts or they do not observe. So, I think it should be B.

Introvert - a person predominantly concerned with their own thoughts and feelings rather than with external things.
