Solution

The correct option is D Nature of substrate
The respiratory quotient (R.Q) is the ration of the volume of the CO2 released to the volume of the O2 utilized by a substrate during the process of respiration. It solely depends on the nature of the substrate. The R.Q. reflect the nature of the substrate, for example, R.Q. 1 indicated that glucose is the respiratory substrate.
Hence, the correct answer is 'Nature of substrate'.
