Dear student 
Gametophytes produce haploid sperm and eggs which fuse to form diploid zygotes that grow into sporophytes. Meiosis takes place in the tiny sporophyte stage of bryophytes, which are attached to and dependent on the much larger gametophyte stage. The sporophytes create spores by meiosis in the sporangium, which disperse by wind and water to form new gametophytes.
So the correct answer is option A "sporogonium".
