Solution

The correct option is C

Inefficiency in transporting oxygen


In amphibians since oxygenated and deoxygenated blood get mixed, it decreases their efficiency to carry oxygen as well as energy generation. This is also a contributing factor for them being cold-blooded and not being able to maintain a constant body temperature.
