Solution

The correct option is B Haemozoin
In malaria, the product released by mosquito into the blood that causes chill and fever is called Haemozoin. Haemozoin is formed from the digestion of blood by some blood-feeding parasites. Malarial parasite after entering the blood ruptures red blood cells and releases a toxin called haemozoin.

So, the correct answer is -haemozoin.
