Answer and Explanation :-

Answer: Option 2


The first synthetic fibre to be made was Rayon in 1885 by a Swiss Chemist named Audemars. But Nylon is considered the first true man-made synthetic fibre invented, even though it was created much later in 1931, as unlike other synthetic fibres like Rayon and Acetate, which had been derived from plant cellulose, Nylon was synthesized completely from petrochemicals.
