Solution

The correct option is C Metal ions
An enzyme consists of a protein part (apoenzyme) and non-protein part (cofactor). The apoenzyme and cofactor together forms the holoenzyme.
There are three kinds of cofactors - prosthetic groups, coenzymes and metal ions. The organic co-factor includes the prosthetic groups and coenzymes while metal ions are the inorganic part.
