Answer

Correct option is
C

Vestibular region

The vestibule is the region of the inner ear, where the semicircular canals converge, close to the cochlea (the hearing organ). Two other organs that are part of the vestibular system are the utricle and saccule. These are called as the otolithic organs and are responsible for detecting linear acceleration, or movement in a straight line.
