Solution

The correct option is B Five
Steroid hormones are lipid-soluble and can easily pass through the cell membrane of a target cell into the cytoplasm. Thyroid hormone is a protein hormone that has a mechanism of action similar to that of steroid hormones, it can also pass through the plasma membrane of the cells and act on intracellular receptors. The hormones Aldosterone, Cortisol, Estradiol, and Progesterone are steroid hormones. These along with thyroid hormone act on intracellular receptors. 
So, the correct option is 'Five'.
