Solution

The correct option is B

Cell differentiation


Stem cells are specialised cells because of their ability to undergo differentiation. Cell differentiation is the process by which a cell can transform itself into a highly specialised cell. The single-celled zygote which is an undifferentiated cell becomes a full-fledged organism by the process of differentiation.
