Correct option is B)

Chemical change always produces a new substance and cannot be reversed. The setting of milk to curd, burning of paper, and boiling of egg all are chemical changes and cannot be reversed. In the options, the changes are considered to be reversible, so these statements are not true. Spoiling of food is a chemical change and cannot be reversed. Hence the correct statement is B.
