B
Molecular genetics

C
Molecular mapping

D
Dry farming

Solution

The correct option is C Molecular farming
Molecular genetics is the study of structure and function of gene and regulation of its expression. It includes isolation and characterization of genes and identification of regulatory sequences. 
Molecular farming is transfer of genes of industrial importance to plants and animals for production of chemicals, for example production of transgenic animals for increased milk production. 
Molecular mapping is identification of loci of genes and their relative distance on chromosomes; DNA finger printing and genomic imprinting are most common techniques used for the purpose. 
Dry farming refers to crop production without irrigation, i.e., under limited moisture conditions; it is practiced for dry lands where water availability is low. 
So, the correct answer is 'Molecular farming'
