Answer: C

Explanation: F-plasmids or fertility plasmids are responsible for providing a conjugative ability to the bacterium. Conjugation is the process by which genetic material transfer takes place between two bacteria when they come in contact through a hollow appendage on the surface joining the two plasmids.
