In case of n-butane $(CH_3 -CH_2-CH_2-CH_3)$ are two isomers will be obtained depending on whether $cl$ atom adds on to carbon-2 or carbon -1
In (ii)
we will get three isomers with $cl$ group at either of the $-CH_3$ groups, second carbon atom and third carbon atom.
In case of (iii) benzene only one derivative is obtained .
In (iv)
We will get two isomers with $Cl$ atom at either one of the $-CH_3$ groups or on the central c-atom.
Hence b is the correct answer.
