Hint: The above problem is based on the working principle of the pinhole camera. The pinhole camera does not consist of any lens. It consists of a box with a small size hole, which acts as the lens for the pinhole camera. The light enters in a straight line by the aperture from top of the box to bottom. The inverted image of the object is formed inside the box.

The pinhole camera does not consist of any lens, so the option (A) and option (B) are incorrect.
The light travels straight through the aperture and produces an inverted image because it is formed at the opposite side of the box. The light from the bottom of the object forms at the top of the opposite side and light from the top of the object goes to the bottom of the box. The pinhole camera does not produce an upright image, so the option (D) is incorrect.

Thus, option (C) is correct.
