Solution

The correct option is C Ethylene
Ethylene is a small hydrocarbon gas as well as a phytohormone. Some fruit will produce ethylene as ripening begins. Apples and pears are examples of fruit that produce ethylene with ripening. Ethylene is responsible for the changes in texture, softening, color, and other processes involved in ripening. Ethylene gas is used commercially to ripen tomatoes, bananas, pears, and a few other fruits postharvest.
