The correct answer is option D
Conjunction is used to connect words or group of words. For and, or, but, nor and yet are examples of conjunction. There are different types of conjunction but the co-coordinating conjunction is the most common one with it main functions as joining words, phrases and clauses.

A preposition is used to connect a noun or pronoun in an adverbial or adjectival phrase.

An adverb is a word that modifies or qualifies a verb or an adjective.

A pronoun is a part of speech that refers to another noun or noun phrase. An interjection is a word solely used to describe emotions.
