Solution

The correct option is A HCl and intrinsic factor
Parietal cells (also known as oxyntic cells) are the epithelial cells located in glands in the lining of the fundic part of the stomach. When these cells are stimulated they secrete hydrochloric acid (HCl) and intrinsic factor.
Pepsinogen is secreted by the chief cells.
