    B)          Partial solar

    C) Total lunar     

    D) Total solar

    Correct Answer: C

    Solution :

        Since size of earth is bigger than that of moon, so the region of total darkness (umbral) is more than the region of partial darkness (penumbral). This kind of eclipse is called total lunar eclipse.
