Correct option is A)

Diaphragmatic or abdominal breathing is the normal pattern of breathing at rest: the abdomen protrudes as the diaphragm is lowered. It is done by contracting the diaphragm, a muscle located horizontally between the chest cavity and stomach cavity. Air enters the lungs and the belly expands during this type of breathing.This deep breathing is marked by expansion of the abdomen rather than the chest when breathing.
