Yes sir crct answer is D cotton.

Cotton plants that sprouted on the moon's far side (Von Kármán Crater)aboard China's Chang'e 4 lander are dead,due to bitter cold of the lengthy lunar night,These photosynthesizing pioneers were part of Chang'e 4's biological experiment, which also included seeds of potato,rapeseed and Arabidopsis plants, as well as fruit-fly eggs and yeast.

Cotton seeds were able to handle these harsh conditions, at least initially, becoming the first plants to sprout.

ADDITIONAL INFO:

The cotton seeds are not the first plants ever to sprout off Earth. Astronauts have tended a variety of minigardens in Earth orbit, aboard Russia's Mir space ,International space station and China's Tiangong-2 space lab.

Hi,

With hardly 120 days left for Prelims 2020, I urge all community members and aspirants for 2020 to invest their energies into Prelims preparation. As we all know, practice is the key; let's pool in our diversified resources and ensure we solve enough MCQs.
