The correct answer is (c) A binary tree, which is completely filled, with the possible exception of the bottom level, which is filled from left to right

Explanation: A binary tree, which is completely filled, with the possible exception of the bottom level, which is filled from left to right is called complete binary tree. A Tree in which each node has exactly zero or two children is called full binary tree. A Tree in which the degree of each node is 2 except leaf nodes is called perfect binary tree.
