Solution

The correct option is C prothallus
In pteridophytes, spore is a haploid structure, which develops after meiosis of spore mother cell. On germination, it gives rise to a green haploid prothallus (gametophyte) which is monoecious, i.e., has both antheridia (male sex organs) and archegonia (female sex organs).
So the correct option is C.
