The correct option is A Aldrovanda
Aldrovanda is an insectivorous plant as it feeds on insects. Aldrovanda vesiculosa, commonly known as the waterwheel plant, captures small aquatic invertebrates using traps similar to those of the Venus flytrap. The traps are arranged in whorls around a central, free-floating stem.
So, the correct answer is 'Aldrovanda'.
