Solution

The correct option is B 4-5
  • Lysosomes are membrane-bound organelles which contain acid hydrolases or digestive enzymes that digest excess or worn out organelles, food particles, engulfed viruses or bacteria and macromolecules.
  • The pH of lysosomes ranges from 4.5 - 5 which is slightly acidic compared to the cytosol which has a pH of 7.2.
  • So, the correct answer is '4-5'.
