The correct option is (b) Rusting

Best explanation: Corrosion of ferrous metals is known as rusting. Rusting of cast iron is less and rusting of wrought iron is medium while that of steel is found to be much more. Enamelling, coal tarring and galvanising are some of the methods used to prevent corrosion.
