Answer: C. The pairing of opposites.

Any statement that contradicts itself is a paradox. An example of a paradox is the statement “dreaming is waking.” This statement is self-contradictory but in a way, tends to make sense and is considered true. In other words, a paradox can be defined as a statement involving the pairing of opposites.
