Solution

The correct option is A

growth of new leaves


Metabolism is the chemical process that occurs within a living organism in order to maintain life. Nitrogen is a part of every protein in the plant so it is required for virtually every process from growing new leaves to defending against pests. Nitrogen is a part of the chlorophyll molecule, which gives plants their green colour and is involved in preparing food for the plant through photosynthesis.
