Correct answer is (b) Arboreal
 
The best I can explain: The adaptation for climbing and balancing is known as arboreal adaptation.  It is also known as scansorial adaptation. It is used by animals for climbing on trees, rocks, walls, etc. This type of adaptation is shown by monkeys, sloths, chameleons, koalas, etc.
