    C. Nectar
    Explanation
    Durian flowers are large and feathery, which suggests that they are adapted to attract specific pollinators. The presence of copious nectar in these flowers further supports this idea. Nectar is a sugary substance that serves as a reward for pollinators, such as bats or insects, which visit the flowers and help in the process of pollination. The production of nectar by durian flowers indicates that they have evolved to rely on nectar-feeding animals for their pollination, making nectar the correct answer.

    B. Pollen
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Pollen. Pollen is the male reproductive component of flowering plants and is responsible for pollination. Certain species of bats that eat nectar are important pollinators for many plants. These bats transfer pollen from one flower to another as they feed on the nectar, allowing for fertilization and the production of seeds and fruits. The odor associated with the question is likely a result of the bats' activity in pollinating the flowers.
