  1. To kill someone by watching the victim in dark
  2. To kill someone by not watching the victim
  3. To kill someone by listening the Sound in dark
  4. None of the above

Answer: Option3

Explanation:

It had very significant role in Mahabharat. It happened twice. Once King Pandu got cursed by killing a saint & his wife by listening the Sound in dark. He went to hunting in the jungles & it became dark after sunset. Suddenly, he listened a sound in dark thought that it was a dear & unleashed the weapon. But instead a saint & his wife got killed because they were engaged in sex. But before their death he cursed King Pandu that he will also die if he try to have sex with wife. King Pandu died when he watched his second wife Madri bathing in fountain & started to get engaged in sex & so the curse came true. Second time, when Arjun was practicing in the dark his Guru Dronacharya saw his dedication & felt so proud that he gave him a boon, that he will be the only disciple among all who will be able to breakthrough any Chakraviyu (attack from all 8 sides) in a war.
