Correct option is C)

Alternation of generation includes switching between haploid and diploid stages of the plant through the process of both sexual and asexual reproduction. It includes production and alternation of sporophyte and gametophyte generations. 
Binary fission is a mode of asexual reproduction in unicellular organisms. Asexual reproduction in mosses includes the formation of various structures, such as spores, which not only helps them to withstand the unfavorable growth conditions but also in propagation; hence the name "vegetative reproduction".
Therefore, the correct answer is option C.
