Solution

The correct option is D (b) and (c) above.
Carbon has catenation property due to which it has the tendency of self-linkage. It can extend to form long chains and rings.
Carbon can combine with other C-atom by single double and triple bond.
C2H6 and C2H4 has CC and C=C bond, thereby making a longer chain.
Hence both are example of catenation.
