DEAR FRIEND

Prokaryotes have large surface area to volume ratio and it is responsible for their high metabolic rate, high growth rate and short generation time. This helps them to have shorter generation time or the doubling time as compared to the eukaryotes. 

Thus, the correct answer is option B.
