Solution

The correct option is D Making a hybrid between two somatic cells
Somatic cell hybridization is a technique in which the protoplast of two different plant species is fused together to form hybrids. The fused protoplast is cultured in the nutrient media and the hybrids are selected for regeneration of new plants. The protoplast is fused by induced or mechanical fusion or in presence of calcium ions and polyethylene glycol.
So, the correct answer is 'Making a hybrid between two somatic cells'
