Toolbox:
• A function is said to be discontinuous if the $LHL\neq RHL$
• A function is said to be discontinuous if either the LHL or RHL does not exist.
$f(x)=\large\frac{4-x^2}{4x-x^2}$
Consider the denominator of the function $4x-x^3$
This is a cubic function,which can have three zeroes .
Hence at three points the function can become discontinuous.
Hence the correct option is $C$
