Hai @mirgir12 Can you please say how you would have sort it out ?

I would say it's B, Can you say how it shows speciation ? @mirgir12
Hint: Speciation can be defined as:
1: the formation of new species;
2: the splitting of a phylogenetic lineage;
3: acquistion of reproductive isolating mechanisms producting discontinuities between populations;
4: process by which a species splits into 2 or more species.
Whether two groups can interbreed or not is one way to determine whether they are separate species. Adaptation to different circumstances may have occurred, but the inability of the two groups to breed would suggest that speciation (allopatric speciation in fact!) is the focus of this question. Hope that helps.
