Hello Student
Correct answer is 2. Molecular Marker
In genetics a molecular marker is a fragment of DNA that is associated with a certain location within the genome. Molecular markers are used in molecular biology and bio-technology to identify a particular sequence of DNA is a pool of unknown DNA. All these are molecular markers.
RFLP : – Restriction Fragment Length Plymorphism.
RAPD : – Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA.
VNTR : – Variable Number Tandem Repeats.
STR : – Short Tandem Repeats.

The correct answer is (2) molecular marker

Any site (locus) in the genome of an organism at which the DNA base sequence varies among the different individuals of a population. Such markers generally have no apparent effect on the phenotype of the individual, but they can be determined by biochemical analysis of the DNA and are used for a variety of purposes, including chromosome mapping, DNA fingerprinting, and genetic screening. The advent of such genetic tools as restriction enzymes and the polymerase chain reaction plus the growing abundance of DNA sequence data, coupled with automated high-throughput assays, have revealed several classes of molecular markers, including restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs), variable number tandem repeats (VNTRs), microsatellite DNA, and single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs).

RFLP – Restriction fragment length polymorphism
RAPD – Random amplified polymorphic DNA
VNTR – Variable number tandem repeat
STR – Short tandem repeats
