The answer is letter A.

“Who wore a green coat” is the adjectival clause, introduced by the relative pronoun WHO. It’s also defined as a DEFINING (restrictive) RELATIVE CLAUSE.

Sentence B has got no dependent, or subordinate clause.

Sentence C has no dependent clause AND its meaning is not the same as the original sentences.

Sentence D is a COMPOUND SENTENCE, joined by the coordinating conjunction AND.
