Spend energy to import energy-rich reactants.
loader
B
Spend energy to export energy-poor products.
loader
C
Place the organism in a closed system, in order to achieve equilibrium.

Solution

The correct option is A Spend energy to import energy-rich reactants.
Living organisms must have a constant input of energy in order to maintain homeostatic condition
Homeostatic is tendency of an organism to maintain their internal environment like temperature in a stable state
In order to maintain homeostatic conditions in an organisms energy is spend to bring reactants or substances which a rich in energy so that it could be utilized to maintain homeostatic condition eg: repairing damaged cell by the energy of reactant.
