The correct option is B

Perichondrium


The perichondrium is a layer of dense irregular connective tissue that surrounds the cartilage. Perichondrium consists of two layers: The outer fibrous layer, which is made of dense irregular connective tissue, which contains the cells called fibroblasts, which produce collagen fibers type I. The inner chondrogenic layer contains fibroblasts, which can produce chondroblasts and chondrocytes.
Perineurium is the connective tissue sheath surrounding each bundle (fascicle) of nerve fibers in a peripheral nerve.
Pericardium is composed of dense connective tissue which anchors the heart
The periosteum consists of dense irregular connective tissue enveloping the bones except at the surfaces of the joints
