    Explanation
    Telegram accounts are tied to telephone numbers. This means that when a user creates a Telegram account, they need to provide a valid telephone number to associate with their account. This telephone number is used as a unique identifier for the account and allows users to connect with others on the platform. It also helps in verifying the user's identity and ensures the security of the account. By linking accounts to telephone numbers, Telegram provides a convenient and secure way for users to communicate and connect with each other.

    B. Sms and calls
    Explanation
    To verify a telegram account, the user needs to provide both SMS and calls. This means that after registering with a phone number, Telegram will send a verification code via SMS, which the user needs to enter to confirm their identity. Additionally, Telegram may also make a phone call to the registered number and provide a verification code that needs to be entered. By using both SMS and calls, Telegram ensures a more secure and reliable verification process for its users.
