Correct option is B)

  • The pteridophytes are the terrestrial vascular plants which have body differentiated into roots, stem, and leaves. 
  • These are the first plants to have vascular tissues. 
  • The plants possess chlorophyll pigments, which help to perform photosynthesis and so they are autotrophic. 
  • These plants reproduce through spores as they don't have flowers.
Thus, the correct answer is option B.
