Question

Solution

The correct option is D Blastocyst
The 8-16 celled structure, morula, is a solid sphere of cells without a central cavity. At the 32 celled stage of the morula, fluid enters inside it and collects in between the blastomeres. Morula then undergoes blastulation to form the blastula. In mammals, the blastula is also referred to as the blastocyst.
The blastomeres then reorganise themselves around a large fluid filled cavity called the blastocoel (cavity of blastocyst).
The cells of the blastula form an epithelial layer called the blastoderm.
Blastopore is the opening of the archenteron (cavity of gastrula).
