Solution

The correct option is D hormone-receptor complex
Hormones bind to certain proteins called hormone receptors, which are present on the cell membrane of the target cells or inside the target cells. Binding of a hormone to its receptor results in the formation of a hormone-receptor complex.

A target tissue is the tissue which has these specific receptors to which the respective hormones bind and produce effects.
