Solution

The correct option is B Seed coat
There are integuments present on the ovule. These act as protective covering for the nucellus cells out of which one will develop as megasporangium. After the process of fertilization, the integuments gets transformed to form the seed coat. If there are two integuments which is known as bitegmic, then the seed will have two seed coats. The ovule gets converted to seed and the ovary to form the fruit.
Thus, the correct answer is option B.
