    Answer: Option B

    Explanation: Crossing over can be defined as the exchange of genetic material between the two homologous non sister chromatid.

    This results in the recombination of chromosomes during sexual reproduction. The frequency of crossing is linked by the distance between two genes.

    If the chromosomes are far then chances of crossing over is more and if the distance between the genes are less then then the chances of crossing over is less.
