Hint:Phrase is a small group of words that are like a unit and an idiom is a
phrase or expression that presents a figurative or non-literal meaning
attached to the phrase.

Complete answer:
Option A) A costly item – is an incorrect answer because the meaning of ‘a costly item’ means an item that is too costly or very expensive and this is not the meaning of the phrase or idiom “Black sheep” and thus, this is an incorrect answer.
Option B) A dark shiny object – is an incorrect answer because the meaning of ‘a dark shiny object’ means something that shines in the dark and this is not the meaning of the phrase or idiom “Black sheep” and thus, this is an incorrect answer.
Option C) An unworthy person in a family or group – is the correct answer because the meaning of “an unworthy person in a family or group’ means exactly the same meaning of “Black sheep”. And the meaning is a member of a family or group who is regarded as a disgrace to it. Thus, this is the correct answer.
Option D) A funny man – is an incorrect answer because the meaning of ‘a funny man’ means a professional clown or comedian and thus this is not the meaning of the “Black sheep” and this is an incorrect answer.

Hence, the correct answer is Option ‘ C’.

Note: Idiom “Black sheep” means an unworthy person in a family or group. Thus, option C is the correct answer and rest options are incorrect
because their meanings are different from the meaning of the “Black sheep”.
