    Hi Matilda


    I`d choose {B} as the only correct answer to the context.
    [A] is possible only if we make some changes:
    "Green contained in the chromosomes are thought of us as the units of heredity."

    Can we get rid of "green"?

    Hi Matilda
    .
    Your sentence would make a whole lot more sense with two changes:
    Genes are contained in the chromosomes, and they are thought of as the units of heredity.
    .
    Answer B works quite nicely then.
