The correct options are
D

The organisms' offsprings can produce fertile offsprings.


For two organisms to be belonging to the same species coming from the same parents, interbreeding and even producing offsprings don't ensure it. Because a horse and a donkey can reproduce to form a mule but horse and donkey don't belong to the same species.
