Correct option is (c) Guillard
The best I can explain: The term ‘demography’ was first used by Achille Guillard in 1855. It is the study of quantitative and statistical (deaths, births, income, incidences of various diseases) aspects of the human population. It is useful for bio-anthropological investigations.
