The answer is B. it is the energy source of the stars.Fission is the type of nuclear energy simulated in Earth, as it is the one that is used to generate electricity. The fusion, on the other hand, is much more complicated to achieve because it requires extremely hot temperatures in comparison with the fission. The merger involves the combination of two hydrogen atoms to make helium, which releases a large amount of energy. Stars like the sun, the exhibition of the merger with its own hot temperatures and abundant source of hydrogen.
