    D)  Bt brinjal

    Correct Answer: C

    Solution :

    Golden rice: Genetic modification has enhanced nutritional value of food, e.g., Vitamin 'A' enriched rice. Tracy (1990-97) was a transgenically modified sheep created by scientists at Scotland's Roslin Institute to produce the human protein Alpha-1 antitrypsin, a substance regarded in the 1990s as a potential pharmaceutical for the treatments of cystic fibrosis and emphysema. Notably, she is the first transgenic farm mammal ever created. Dolly (5 July 1996-14 February 2003) was a female domestic sheep and the first mammal cloned from an adult somatic cell using the process of nuclear transfer. She was cloned by Ian Wilmut, Keith Campbell and colleagues at the Roslin Institute. Hence, the correct option is [c].
