Solution

The correct option is D

i, ii and iii


During adolescence, a sudden increase in height is observed. This is a direct result of sex hormones that are responsible for all growth happening in the body at adolescence. Initially, girls grow faster than boys but by 18 years of age, both reach their maximum height. Maximum height depends on the genes inherited from parents.
