    So, inherited genes, sections of DNA are expressed as traits. In humans this could mean eye color or hair color. There are often more than one version of a gene that are called alleles. Thus flowers of the same species can have different colors just like we have different hair color and eye color.

    So In short, the answer should be d since flowers shouldn't vary based on sunlight, traits are inherited and photosynthesis doens't really occur in flowers.
