Solution

The correct option is C similar habitat
Amphioxus, Salpa and Doliolum are protochordates and they are exclusively marine.
They do not have a vertebral column as they are invertebrates. They have a notochord.
Amphioxus has a persistent notochord which is present throughout its life. Salpa and Doliolum have a notochord only in their larval stages. Adult stages lack notochord. The nerve cord in these animals is hollow and not solid.
