Correct option is C)

  • The first cycle of Plasmodium occurs in liver cells which harm the liver cell because sporozoite phagocytes the cytoplasm of the liver cells.
  • Then the merozoites migrate to the blood and reproduce asexually and burst the RBCs which result in the release of haemozoin from the RBCs that generate symptoms of malaria.
