I think the answer is C but I didn't have a concrete reason to eliminate B except for 'for catching'.

Is my reasoning above correct?

Here is my take on B - In option B we have incorrect comparison.

A cricket fielder is compared to robot's action of grabbing the object. Ideally we should be comparing two actions - Action of cricketer and action of robot.

Similar to an expert cricket fielder who focuses his attention on his movement for catching the ball coming in his direction, a newly developed robot grabs any object tossed in its direction

Hope this help pra1785
