B
Chief cells

C
Parietal cells

D
Mucous cells

Solution

The correct option is D Parietal cells

Erythropoiesis is a process of production of red blood cells. The parietal cells of the stomach are gastric cells that indirectly help in erythropoiesis. These cells produce glycoprotein known as a gastric intrinsic factor (GIF). This factor plays important role in the absorption of vitamin B$$_{12}$$ in the ileum of the small intestine. This vitamin B$$_{12}$$, in turn, is essential in the process of erythropoiesis for differentiation of erythroblasts. Thus, the correct answer is option C.
