    It's B, rRNA sequences are the genes that encode the RNA portion of ribosomes and the process that ribosomes perform is translation, hence B is the correct answer.

    Interesting all the answers are true statement but only B relates to ribosomes/rRNA

    Replication is performed by DNA polymerase so A is wrong

    Transcription is the process of making RNA from the information in DNA using RNA polymerase so C is wrong

    Mutations refer to changes in DNA sequences (that eventually affect proteins but the mutation rate refers to changes in DNA) so D is wrong.
