The correct answer is B. No jaws. The new species resembles an ostrachodermi.

Explanation:

Ostrachodermi is an extinct class of agnate fishes, considered as the most ancient vertebrate. They were little filtering organisms, with no mandible or jaws, and no paired fins. Their bodies were covered by squama, bony plates, and shields. They used to move in the bottoms when they were feeding on detritus.
