Correct option is C)

Folding of the geosyncline relates to the formation of the Himalayas. The geosynclinal sediments of Tethys sea were squeezed and folded into Alpine-Himalayan mountain chains due to lateral compressive forces caused by the convergence and collision of Eurasian and African-Indian continental plates during Cenozoic Era.
