Solution

The correct option is C In middle piece
The mammalian sperm has three parts viz., a head, middle piece and a tail. The midpiece has a central filamentous core with many mitochondria spiraled around it, used for ATP production for the journey through the female cervix, uterus and uterine tubes. Hence, option C is correct.
