Correct option is D)

  • The cytoplasm has two main components, such as cytosol, cell organelles, and cytoplasmic inclusions. 
  • The cytosol is a fluid or jelly-like substance and is present within the cell membrane.
  • Cell organelles are the small structures that help the cell in performing basic functions. 
  • Cytoplasmic inclusions are tiny particles that are suspended in the cytoplasm.
  • Since the cytoplasm has cytosol, a fluid-like and clear substance, it consists of 80 percent of water and because of this, cytoplasm acts as a medium for several cellular metabolic activities. 
  • There are remaining components such as proteins, fats, and minerals, which constitute up to 25  percent together.

Therefore, water is the major constituent for a living cell and in the  living body
