Solution

The correct option is D Chemical compounds in cells lose their organisation over time because there is no longer an input of energy to maintain the organised state
There is constant input of energy needed for all the activities that go inside a living organism. Food is the source of this energy. When an organism dies, these activities or reactions are stopped which results in loss of organisation of chemical compounds in cells. 
So, the correct option is 'Chemical compounds in cells lose their organisation over time because there is no longer an input of energy to maintain the organised state'.
