B

C

D

Solution

The correct option is B Ootheca
The female reproductive system has two large ovaries that are present laterally in the 2nd to the 6th abdominal segments. A group of eight ovarian tubules forms one ovary. They contain a chain of developing ova. The fertilized eggs are encased in a casing called the oothecae. Female cockroaches produce around 9 to 10 oothecae which contain around 14 to 16 eggs each.
So the correct answer is 'Ootheca'.
