The correct option is Option 2 - Fasciculated: Sweet Potato.

Adventitious root modifications refer to specialized roots that perform functions other than typical anchorage and absorption. Let's break down each option:

Tuberous: Asparagus - This is incorrect because asparagus has adventitious roots that are modified into tubers for storage and propagation.

Fasciculated: Sweet Potato - This is correct. The sweet potato has adventitious roots that are modified into fascicles (clusters) for storage and nutrient storage.

Nodulose: Bitter gourd - This is incorrect. Bitter gourd does not have nodulose (knotted/swollen) adventitious roots.

Annulated: Ipecac - This is incorrect. Ipecac does not have annulated (ringed) adventitious roots.

So, the correct answer is Option 2) Fasciculated: Sweet Potato.
