**Hint:**In order to answer this question we should first know about the \[1^{st}\] order reaction and half life of a reaction. The relation between half life and first order reaction is \[{{t}_{\dfrac{1}{2}}} = \dfrac{0.693}{k}\].

**Complete step-by-step solution:**

When rate of reaction is directly dependent on the concentration of a single reactant the phenomena is as First order reaction. On the other hand, the amount of time taken for the concentration of a reaction to reach half of its initial concentration is called the Half life reaction. From the integrated form of first order reaction we get, \[\left[ A \right] = \left[ A \right]0{{e}^{-kt}}\]

Now when the time \[t={{t}_{\dfrac{1}{2}}}\], [ Half life \[= {{t}_{\dfrac{1}{2}}}\]]

Here, \[\left[ A \right]\] is concentration of reaction and \[\left[ A \right]0\] is the initial concentration

Now by substituting \[\left[ A \right]\] with \[\dfrac{\left[ A \right]0}{2}\] and \[t\] with \[{{t}_{\dfrac{1}{2}}}\], in the integration form of first order reaction we get,

\[\Rightarrow \dfrac{\left[ A \right]0}{2}=\left[ A \right]0{{e}^{-k{{t}_{\dfrac{1}{2}}}}}\]

\[\Rightarrow \dfrac{1}{2}={{e}^{-k{{t}_{\dfrac{1}{2}}}}}\]

By eliminate “e” from the above equation we get-

\[\Rightarrow \ln \left( \dfrac{1}{2} \right)=-kt\dfrac{1}{2}\]

\[\therefore t\dfrac{1}{2}=\dfrac{0.693}{k}\]

Therefore option (C) is the right answer.

**Note:**For zero order reaction half life will be \[{{t}_{\dfrac{1}{2}}}=\dfrac{\left[ R \right]0}{2k}\] . Unit of \[\left[ R \right]0\] is \[[mol.{{L}^{-1}}]\] that is the initial reactant concentration .
