She was an American. Barbara McClintock, America\'s most distinguished cytogeneticist, was born in Hartford, Connecticut on June 16, 1902. She received her B.S. from Cornell University in 1923 and earned her M.A. in 1925 and her Ph.D. in 1927, also from Cornell. McClintock served as a graduate assistant in the Department of Botany from 1924-27 and in 1927, following completion of her graduate studies, was appointed Instructor, a post she held until 1931.McClintock was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 1983 \"for her discovery of mobile genetic elements.\" She was a Biologist but not Botanist.Therefore A) and C) is the right answer.
