detailed solution

Correct option is D

Bryophytes are green photosynthetic (contain chloroplast) and thalloid structures (liverworts, hornworts) or differentiated into root-like, stem-like and leaf-like structures (mosses).  They have motile  sperms and  so they need water for fertilisation. Archegonia evolved for the first time in bryophytes in the plant kingdom.
