B

Solution

The correct option is A Lysosome
The role of lysosome has been discovered in the metamorphosis of the frog. The disappearance of the tail from the tadpole larva of frog is due to lysosomal activity. The lysosomes contain an enzyme, cathepsin, which degrades the polypeptides in the tail leading to its disappearance.
So, the correct answer is option A.
