The correct option is Option B.
The way in which the leaves are arranged on a stem is called phyllotaxy. When only one leaf arises from a node, and leaves are borne along the stem alternately, it is called alternate phyllotaxy. When two leaves arise from one node, opposite to each other it is called opposite phyllotaxy. When a plant has several leaves attached to the same node, in a whorl it is called whorled phyllotaxy.
So, X : Whorled, Y : Opposite, Z : Alternate
