Solution

The correct option is A Agrobacterium tumefaciens
Agrobacterium tumifaciens, a pathogen of several dicot plants is able to deliver a piece of DNA known as ‘T-DNA’ to transform normal plant cells into a tumor and direct these tumor cells to produce the chemicals required by the pathogen. It is used to transfer genes in higher organisms as well.
