Solution

The correct option is B a- conidia- Penicillium, b-gemmules- Spongilla, c-zoospores- Chlamydomonas, d- bud- Hydra
Penicillium reproduce by asexual reproductive structures called conidia which are exogenously produced and they are non-motile structures.
Sponges reproduce by budding. In sponges the buds are endogenously produced. These buds are called gemmules. Eg Spongilla.
Chlamydomonas reproduce by structures called zoospores that are usually microscopic motile structures.
Hydra reproduce by budding. The bud grows externally on the parent body and remain attached to the parent body. It develops into an adult and detaches from the parent body.
