Solution

The correct option is D Maturation phase
The primary sex organs, testes in males and ovaries in females produces gametes, i.e., sperms and ovum respectively by the process called as gametogenesis which consists of three phases- multiplication, growth and maturation phase. 
Multiplication phase - The germ cells proliferate through mitosis.
Growth phase - Germ cells increase in size.
Maturation phase - Germ cells undergo meiosis to produce haploid gametes.
Thus, the correct answer is option C.
