Solution

The correct option is B Hyaline cartilage
There are three varieties of cartilage, hyaline, elastic, and fibrocartilage.
The most abundant type is hyaline, found as supportive tissues in the nose, trachea, larynx, and smaller respiratory tubes. 
Fibro- is found in invertebral discs, joint capsules, ligaments.
Elastic- is found in the external ear, epiglottis. 
Since hyaline cartilage is the type that is present in the nose, it is used in the repair of the nasal septum.
