    B)  Katha              

    C)  Brihadamnyaka  

    D)         Svetasvatara                

    Correct Answer: C

    Solution :

    Brihadaranyaka Upanishad is written in the prose. It is contained within the Shatapatha Brahmana, and its status as an independent Upanishad may be considered a secondary extraction of a portion of the Brahmana text. It consists of three sections or Khandas: the Madhu Khanda, the Yajnavalkya or the Muni Khanda and the Khila Khanda. Upnishads are a brief poem (except Brihadaranyak upritehad which is in prose form) consisting of verses depending on the recension.
