$\begin{array}{1 1}(a)\;\text{Mixture of }o-\text{ and }m-\text{bromotoluences}\\(b)\;\text{Mixture of }o-\text{ and }p-\text{bromotoluences}\\(c)\;\text{Mixture of }o-\text{ and }p-\text{dibromotoluences}\\(d)\;\text{Mixture of }o-\text{ and }p-\text{bromoanilines}\end{array}$

Hence (b) is the correct answer.
