A
Length of actin filaments

B
Size of region enclosed by two Z lines

C
H zone

D
I band

Solution

The correct option is A Length of actin filaments
Sarcomeres are composed of long, fibrous proteins as filaments that slide past each other when a muscle contractor relaxes. Two of the important proteins are myosin, which forms the thick filament, and actin, which forms the thin filament. Upon muscle contraction, the A-bands do not change their length (1.85 micrometers in mammalian skeletal muscle), whereas the I-bands and the H-zone shorten. This causes the Z lines to come closer together.
 So the correct option is 'Length of actin filament'.
