Best answer
ans will be C  

as internal interrupts occur due to some internal error (like division by zero)

external interrupts occur due some h/w event  like power failure etc

software interrupts or system calls are the most appropriate method for switching from a user mode to kernel mode

examples ctr+C , int 86 etc.
