Dear student 
 
Conjugation is the transfer of DNA by direct cell-to-cell contact that is mediated by plasmids (nonchromosomal DNA molecules). Conjugative plasmids encode an extremely efficient mechanism that mediates their own transfer from a donor cell to a recipient cell. The process takes place in one direction since only the donor cells contain the conjugative plasmid
SO , B is correct 
Hope this helps 
Good Luck

DEAR FRIEND

Transduction is the process in which the gene is transferred into the bacterial cell with the help of the phage. When the phage attacks the bacterial cell, the phage DNA gets incorporated into bacterial genome (prophage), replicates and forms new viral particles. During this process, some of the bacteriophages may contain the bacterial genes which on the second round of infection will be transferred to the other bacterium. 

Thus, the correct answer is option C
