Solution

The correct option is C Acquired characters influence germline cells
Neo - lamarckism is a modified version of lamarckism derived from research in modern genetics. Neo - lamarckism through relevant experiments proved that germ cells may sometimes be formed from somatic cells. In such cases, environmental changes affecting those particular somatic cells may get inherited through the germ cells. In some cases, germ cells may also be directly affected by environmental changes. Therefore germ cells formed from somatic cells can inherit the changes in somatic cells due to influential environmental effects.
