The correct choice is (c) Shear

Easy explanation: A triple roll mill is a machine that uses shear force which is created by three horizontally positioned rolls rotating in the opposite directions and also with different speeds relative to each other. This is done in order to refine, mix, disperse and homogenize viscous materials.
