A. | epicycloid |

B. | cycloid |

C. | trochoid |

D. | hypocycloid |

Answer» D. hypocycloid | |

Explanation: cycloid is a curve generated by a point on the circumference of a circle which rolls along a straight line. ‘epi’ represents the directing path is a circle. trochoid is a curve generated by a point fixed to a circle, within or outside its circumference, as the circle rolls along a straight line. ‘hypo’ represents the generating circle is inside the directing circle. |
