Best answer
Correct option is A)
Arrhenotoky is a type of parthenogenesis. Parthenogenesis is the phenomenon of the asexual form of reproduction. The organisms under stress conditions perform parthenogenesis. This is the phenomenon in which the unfertilized eggs can develop into males. This process causes the production of males which are haploid. There may be the development of diploid males in which one set of chromosomes is completely inactivated. Arrhenotoky occurs in the members of the insect which belongs to the order Hymenoptera. This group include the bees, ants, wasps and thrips.
Thus, the correct answer is option A.
