Answer:

The answer is C) protection from UV radiation.

Explanation:

Sebum is an oily substance produced by your skin, specifically the sebaceous glands. It waterproofs the skin, so the answer is not A). It also lubricates the skin, so B) cannot be the answer. Sebum also protects your skin from bacteria. Then D) can’t be the answer, either. So the answer must be C).
