Correct option is
A

Egypt

The term 'extra-long-staple' (ELS) cotton typically denotes a cotton fibre of extraordinary fibre length. It is grown in Egypt.

The name Egyptian cotton is also broadly recognized as being associated with quality products. However, only a smaller percentage of Egyptian cotton produced each year is actually ELS cotton. The majority of Egyptian production is a long-staple cotton variety called Giza 86.
