    This one should be PKJKP. This seismic wave phase is particularly associates with the conversion of P wave (in outer core) to S wave (in the inner core). While other phases are not related to conversion but to the phases that gets reflected from any particular boundary like PKiKP is a seismic wave phase in which P wave gets reflected from Inner Core Boundary. While PKIKP is a seismic wave phase that bottoms in the inner core or a P wave that travels through mantle,outer core and inner core. PKIKP is sometimes denoted by PKPdf. So correct option should be B.
