The tadpole is a young frog; frogs are amphibians. The lamb is a young sheep; sheep are mammals.

Choices b and c are incorrect because they are not part of the progression.
A table made of wood could come from an oak tree. A shirt made of cloth could come from a cotton plant. Choice a looks like a reasonable answer if you apply the same sentence: "A shirt made of cloth could come from sewing." But this is not the same relationship as the one above the line. The oak and the cotton are both materials used to make the table and the shirt.
