Hint: Vasectomy is the surgical process of making the male sterile or permanently contraceptive in nature. Hence the male who undergoes this vasectomy surgery cannot reproduce by the intercourse with female to produce its next generation.

Complete answer:
In this surgery of the vasectomy, the male vas deferens is cut from the urethra and is tied. The vas deferens is the part that is continued by the epididymis from the prostate gland of the male. The sperm that is produced from the testis moves to the prostate gland and there it gets the nourishment and stores there up to the reproduction.

 When there is the time of reproduction, the sperm from the prostate gland moves to the epididymis and from there it moves through the vas deferens. The sperm and the prostate liquid constitutively called semen then travels through the urethra and thereby fertilizes. Since the vas deferens is tied in the vasectomy, the sperm cannot reach the urethra and there by no fertilization occurs. The sperm in the semen stores in the epididymis and it gradually disappears.

Thus the correct answer is option (D).

Note:This surgical procedure of the vasectomy is the perfect method for the birth control and the regulation of the population. If any need arises, this again can be made for the reproduction by again connecting the urethra and the vas deferens. But it is not as effective as the normal.
