Answer

The correct option is B) RBC of human.

Red blood cells (RBCs) of humans provide the best material for studying the structure of the cell membrane. Chemical studies performed on the RBC membrane have allowed scientists to deduce the probable structure of the plasma membrane.

The plasma membrane of an RBC is composed of a complex and well-organized arrangement of lipids and proteins. These components form a lipid bilayer that is interrupted by different proteins that either penetrate through or are attached to the membrane.
