The Answer is C.
Leading is the space between each line of text, also known as line-height or line spacing.
Example of leading
Increasing the leading on body paragraphs allows the text to breathe, making it both easier to read and more visually appealing. Leading is typically applied when laying out books, magazines and/or newspapers.
In web design, leading can be controlled using the CSS property: line-height. In Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator, a tool in the character panel allows you to manually adjust the leading.
Similar to kerning you'll want to adjust the leading based on font size, typeface, colors and/or background colors, as these characteristics will determine the ease with which your readers will be able to digest the text.
