Correct answer is (d) Rooted-floating angiosperms
 
Explanation: The sequence of successional stages occurring in water is known as hydrarch succession or hydrosere. The rooted-submerged plants with time are replaced by rooted-floating angiosperms. An example of a rooted-floating angiosperm is water lily.
