Solution

The correct option is A Meristem culture
  • When plant breeders want to re-generate plants that are virus-free using asexual multiplication, they often collect the apical meristem from the infected plant and cultivate it an appropriate medium, so that a new, complete and virus-free plantlets develop
  • Generally plant shoot apical meristems are virus free.  
  • The meristem grows into a virus-free shoot that is rooted to get a virus-free plant. 
  • Hence, Virus-free plants can be generated through Meristem culture.
  • So, the correct answer is 'Meristem culture'
