Solution

The correct option is A Plastids
  • Plastids: Plastids are organelles that are present only in plant cells and they contain pigments. Chlorophyll , a green pigment present in chloroplast helps in photosynthesis.​

  • ​Cell membrane: Cell membrane is a common structure seen in plant, animal and even bacterial cells. ​

  • Vacuole: Both plant and animal cells contain vacuole. The difference is plant vacuole is large central and permanent whereas animal vacuole is small, many and temporary.​
