Solution

The correct option is A day 14 of the cycle
The changes that the ovary and the uterus undergo during a menstrual cycle also brings about a change in the level of the pituitary and ovarian hormones such as the LH and FSH. Both attain a peak value in the middle of the cycle at about the 14th day. This surge causes rupture of Graafian follicle and release of the ovum by the process of ovulation.
So, the correct answer is 'day 14 of the cycle'.
