Right option is (a) Weiner
 
The best explanation: In computer science, a suffix tree is also known as PAT tree or position tree. It is a compressed search tree or prefix tree in which keys contain the suffix of text values as the text position. The concept of Suffix Tree was introduced by Weiner in 1973.
