I think you forgot to give the options along with the question. I am answering the question based on my knowledge and research. "Chlorophytes" is the one type of algae that shows a distinct alternation of generations. I hope that this is the answer that you were looking for and it has actually come to your help.
The answer is Chlorophytes.
Hope this helped ya.

"Chrysophytes" is the one among the following types of algae that shows a distinct alternation of generations. The correct option among all the options that are given in the question is the third option or the last option. I hope that this is the answer that has come to your great help.
-Alternation of generations refers specifically to the alternation between multicellular haploid life stages and multicellular diploid life stages.
-The key feature is that both the diploid and haploid stages are multicellular. -Diploid forms (sporophytes) produce haploid spores, which divide and develop directly into multicellular haploid structures (gametophytes). -Gametophytes then produce haploid gametes, which join with other gametes to form diploid sporophytes once again. In simpler words; the diploid and haploid generations alternate, over and over.
C) Chrysophytes is the type of algae that shows a distinct alternation of generations.
The right answer for the question that is being asked and shown above is that: "B)Phaeophytes." Among the following types that is shown in the choices, the type of algae shows a distinct alternation of generations is that of Phaeophytes
The types of algae that shows a distinct alternation of generations is : C. Chrysophytes
Chrysophytes can only survive in an environment that is low in calcium , which is they're really common to be found in Freshwater
Hope this helps
There are many types of algae. Some of which are brown algae or the Phaeophyta/Phaeophytes,the green algae which is also known as the Chlorophytes, and the Chrysophytes or the golden algae. Among these algae, only the Chrysophytes shows distinct alternation of generations or metagenesis.
