        The correct answer is
        (d) The cell has a great metabolic demand

        Explanation:
        If we see a large number of mitochondria in a cell, we can infer that the cell has a great metabolic demand. A high metabolic demand means that the cell requires a large amount of energy released in the process called cellular respiration. The mitochondria are where most of the energy of the cell is made.
