Correct option is A)

The energy currency of the cell is ATP (Adenosine triphosphate).
During a cellular reaction, all the energy is not released as free energy but some of it is stored in ATP as chemical energy.
The phosphate bonds in ATP are high energy bonds and they are broken whenever the cell requires energy. It is used in various energy-requiring processes of the cell.
So, the correct option is 'ATP'
