Hint: An adjective is a word that expresses an attribute of something. It is the word class that qualifies nouns.

Complete answer: In the given question, we have to find out which of the options include the adjective form of the noun ‘dirt’.
The given word ‘dirt’ is a noun which is defined as-
(i)the part of the earth's surface consisting of humus and disintegrated rock
(ii)the state of being covered with unclean things
(iii)disgraceful gossip about the private lives of other people
Let us thus analyze the options given to us in this question:
(a)'dirtful'- It consists of the suffix ‘ful’ at the end. Therefore, option (a) is incorrect as this word does not exist.
(b)‘dirten'- It consists of the suffix ‘en’ at the end. Therefore, option (b) is incorrect as this word does not exist.
(c)‘dirty', refers to a word that means ‘soiled or likely to soil with dirt or grime; (of behaviour or especially language) characterized by obscenity or indecency’.Therefore, option (c) is correct as it is an adjective.
(d)‘dirtious’- It consists of the suffix ‘ious’ at the end. Therefore, option (d) is incorrect as this word does not exist.

Note: In this question, it will be helpful for the student to recall the concept of nouns. A noun is a content word that can be used to refer to a person, place, thing, quality, or action. It is the word class that can serve as the subject or object of a verb, the object of a preposition, or in apposition.
