(C) Message is answer.

For Application, Presentation and Session layers, the PDU is message

For Transport layer, PDU is segment for TCP and datagram for UDP

For Network layer, PDU is packet

For Datalink layer, PDU is frames

For physical layer, PDU is stream of bits

The answer is Message but I have a doubt. If datagram is related to UDP datagram or IP datagram?
