Correct Answer: (d) the process of taking silk threads from cocoon

Explanation: The process of unwinding the silk filaments from the cocoon and combining them together to make a thread of raw silk is called reeling.

[Extra information: For commercial purposes, 3-10 fine filaments are reeled together at a time to produce desired diameters of reeled silk. The final viable length of reeled filament is 300-600 m.]
