Solution

The correct option is A Spiny ant eater and duck-billed platypus
Long-beaked echidnas are known as monotremes- a small and primitive order of mammals that lay eggs rather than give birth to live young. 
There are only five living monotreme species: the duck-billed platypus and four species of echidna (also known as spiny anteaters). All of them are found only in Australia and New Guinea. 
So, the correct answer is option A.
