I think it's just bone marrow right?

"Small lymphocytes consist of T cells and B cells." - Wikipedia This is easily rememberable: T-cells (originates from "T"hymus,) while B-cells (originates from "B"onemarrow.) So the answer is both Thymus & Bone marrow.

Aren't the T cells matured in the Thymus and not produced there?

Yes, you're absolutely right. There's where they go through "T-cell" bootcamp, so the body doesn't end up with Autoimmunological diseases or worse. The ones that fail the test is phagocytosed. But the fact remains that active agents of T-cells derives matured from the Thymus CD-8, CD-4 helper cells... etc.

So does this mean that all lymphocytes are 'produced' from the Bone Marrow?

Yes, but the T-cells that leaves the bonemarrow are not really T-cells yet, they serve no fuction. It's in the Thymus where they mature so in a matter of speaking T-cells derives from the Thymus. But yes originally Both comes from the Bone marrow B-cells mature in the bone marrow therefore it's safe to say that they originates from the bonemarrow. It's a matter of interpertation of this question. I don't know what your lecture would consider the correct answer. If theres room to write, you can mention that T-cells mature in Thymus but originates from the Bone-marrow.
