    (a) and (d)

    Because consonance means a close similarity between consonants or groups of consonants, especially at the ends of words, e.g. between "strong" and "ring"

    Only 'd' is consonant as both the meter and pronunciation of the two phrases 'river birch' and 'upland beech' are similar.
