    Hi @ilovemiles. Do you actually mean Drosophila melanogaster? Please note that when you word-process a scientific name, the Genus that is the first word always starts with a capital letter and the second one - the species, starts with a small letter but both are italized whilst when hand-writing it, you can't really show the italic font. So, you underline both. Check the following links: http://www.cactiguide.com/article/?article=article1.php http://iczn.org/sites/iczn.org/files/3407-Drosophila-%20PressRelease_0_0.pdf I hope that it helps. For the question you've posted, the answer would be b, but take into account the things I've mentioned before.
