The correct option is option B.

Explanation for Correct option:

  1. The process through which an organism goes through different physical changes and develops from an immature adult or larval form into a mature adult is known as metamorphosis.
  2. Through the process of metamorphosis, a tadpole evolves into an adult frog as it matures from an immature adult.
  3. Metamorphosis is a type of physical transformation that changes an organism's immature form into a mature form, sometimes known as an adult. Metamorphosis is the change that occurs in organisms.

Explanations for Incorrect options:
