Correct Answer: (c) budding

Explanation:

Hydra is a simple multicellular organism having tentacles that live in freshwater and reproduces by the process of asexual reproduction known as budding.

During budding, a small bulb-like projection known as the bud develops on the body of the parent organism. The bud continues to grow on the parent until it develops and matures and after complete maturation, the bud pinches off from the parent's body to develop independently.
