    C
    The difference between delay queues and visibility timeouts is that for delay queues, a message is hidden when it is first added to the queue, whereas for visibility timeouts, a message is hidden only after a message is retrieved from the queue

    Agreed answer C is correct.Using increased visibility timeout.
