Solution

The correct option is C 13
Paurometabolous means gradual metamorphosis that involves a nymphal stage. The embryo develops into a mature individual without involving a larval stage. The nymphs look very much like adults and it undergoes 13 moults to become an adult. The last nymphal stage before the adult stage has wing pads but only adult cockroaches have wings.
