Dear student,
Please find below the answer:

The correct option is (b).

Cones or strobili are of two types; male strobili and female strobili. The cones bearing microsporophylls are called male cones. They bear microspores which develop into the male gametophyte, which further gives rise to pollen grains. The cones bearing megasporophylls are called female cones. They bear megaspores which develop into the female gametophyte, which bears two or more archegonia or female sex organs. 

Hope this clears your doubt.
