The correct answer is option D
Coevolution is the kind of evolution described above.
Coevolution is a kind of evolution that describes the case where two or more species reciprocally affect each other’s evolution. Coevolution is common among species that have close ecological interactions among themselves.

Example of such is that of the bees’ structures that evolved to help pollinate flowers and structures that evolved in flowers that make it easy for certain species of bees to collect nectar.

Macroevolution, convergent evolution and divergent evolution do not describe the kind of evolution in the text above.
