Solution

The correct option is B Rayon, it is cheaper than silk and can be woven like silk.

Rayon has properties similar to that of silk, it is cheaper as it is made by the chemical treatment of wood pulp. So if we make a saree out of rayon then it will give the rich look of silk but will be cost effective. Hence rayon is known as artificial silk and is highly used.
