Best Answer

B. 

Sol.Abiogenesis theory states that life originated from non-living things in a spontaneous manner. Biogenesis theory was developed by Francisco Redi, who rejected abiogenesis theory after performing an experiment. He took the flesh and cooked it so that no organisms were left alive. Then he placed flesh in three jars, of which one was uncovered, the second was covered with parchment and the third one was coveredwith fine muslin. He kept these jars for a few days and observed that maggots developed only in the uncovered jar though the flies also visited other jars.
