Phosphorus is a constituent of cell membranes, certain proteins, all nucleic acids and nucleotides. This element is involved in energy transfer such as ATP and ADP and activates coenzymes for amino acid production which is necessary for protein synthesis. Further phosphorous is also a required for other metabolic processes such as photosynthesis, glycolysis, respiration and fatty acid synthesis.
Therefore, the correct answer is option B.
