The correct answer is option B.

Paper/plastic sterilization pouches should not be placed within wrapped set or rigid container systems because the pouches cannot be properly positioned within the wrapped set or rigid containers. The method of placing sterilization pouches in wrapped set or containers has not been validated as appropriate or effective by any paper/plastic pouch, container systems or wrap manufacturer.

Pouches should be placed on their edge, paper side to plastic side when positioned on the sterilizer to ensure air removal, sterilant and drying. Paper/plastic sterilization pouches are suitable for steam sterilization process and they are not only used for dry sterilization process.
