Solution

The correct option is D

LH stimulating interstitial cells to release testosterone


There are two important gonadotropins released from the pituitary - the luteinizing hormone or LH and follicle stimulating hormone or FSH. The LH stimulates the cells of the connective tissue present in between the seminiferous tubules in the testes called the interstitial cells or leydig cells to produce testosterone.
