Historical refers something from past either imp or not. Historic means some important things/events/acts from past. Since decision were taken and it must be important so it will be historic decision.

Historic means --> Very important, Noteworthy.

Historical means --> Events from history or about history.

Histrionic --> Acting.

So the appropriate answer will be 'B'.

Both the words historic and historical are adjective. So, options B & C are correct.

Aman said:   1 decade ago
The words historic and historical are close in meaning, but their uses are quite different.

Historic : The adjective historic means having importance in history or having influence on history.

Historical : The adjective historical means having taken place in history, from the past or pertaining to history.

Side-by-side examples:

This is a historical event.
(one that happened in the past)

This is a historic event.
(one that is important in history, e.g., the Moon landing)

He was a historical scholar.
(A scholar who studied history)

He was a historic scholar.
(A scholar who was important in history, e.g., Homer)

The bones were of historical significance.
(significant from a perspective of history, i.e., possibly worthless but important to study history)

The bones were of historic significance.
(very significant, i.e., important in history)
(1)

Historical is used for things that are already happened whereas.

Historic in this question make a sense that the decisions taken by them at the meeting will creates history in future.

So I think B is the correct answer.

I think Historic is correct

Historic means "important," "momentous," or "historically significant." Historical means "relating to the past."

Examples:

"America has entered one of its periods of historic madness, but this is the worst I can remember." (John Le Carre)

"The Sixties are now considered a historical period, just like the Roman Empire." (Dave Barry)
