A boy is whirling a stone tied with a string in an horizontal circular path. If the string breaks, the stone
$(a)$. will continue to move in the circular path
$(b)$. will move along a straight line towards the centre of the circular path
$(c)$. will move along a straight line tangential to the circular path
$(d)$. will move along a straight line perpendicular to the circular path away from the boy

If the string gets broken, then there is no force to cause the stone to move along a circular path. Then it will not move along a circular path. It will move along a straight line tangential to the circular path.

So, option $(c)$ is correct.
