Final Answer :
B
Explanation :
A deep voice is a secondary male sex characteristic that develops during puberty due to increased testosterone levels, causing the vocal cords to thicken and lengthen. The other options listed (penis, testicles, and scrotum) are primary sex characteristics, which are present at birth and involved in reproduction.
