Solution

The correct option is D suicide bags

Lysosomes are tiny sac-like organelles surrounded by a single membrane. These lysosomes contain digestive enzymes that help in the destruction of foreign substances that enter the cell. Under certain conditions, when a cell gets damaged, the lysosomes burst, and the released enzymes digest their own cell. Thus, lysosomes are known as 'suicide bags' of the cell.
