b) union of unreduced gametes from autotrtiploid and autopentaploid parents
c) union of two unreduced gametes from two diploid parents

just count, what number of chromosomes would you get
a) 8/2 + 2/2
b) 3 + 5
c) 2 + 2
d) 4/2 + 8/2
e) anything else...

(so, yes, should be d)

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
