Solution

The correct option is B Progesterone
Female sex hormones are the hormones that bring about secondary sexual characteristics in women during puberty. The main female sex hormone is oestrogen. Progesterone is also a crucial female sex hormone. These hormones are produced in the gonads and control the ovulation cycle and maintain a healthy female reproductive system. Testosterone belongs to a class of male hormones called androgens. Adrenaline is not a sex hormone.
