Solution

The correct option is C Fertilization
  • Sexual reproduction involves the formation and fusion of germ cells or gametes of both males and females.
  • This fusion of male and female gamete is termed as fertilization or syngamy.
  • Fertilization can either occur externally (outside the body of a female) or internally (inside the body of a female) to form a diploid zygote which will further develop to form the embryo and later a complete individual.

So the correct answer is option C.
