Solution

The correct option is B Polyethylene glycol
Somatic fusion, also called protoplast fusion, is a type of genetic modification in plants by which two distinct species are fused together to form a new hybrid plant with the characteristics of both, a somatic hybrid. PEG mediated cell fusion is a simple and efficient technique used widely for the production of somatic cell hybrids and for nuclear transfer in mammalian cloning.
So, option B is the correct option.
