Solution

The correct option is A Liver
In jaundice, the liver is the affected organ. One of the most important symptoms of jaundice is that the color of skin and eyes change to yellow. This change in color is due to the deposition of bile pigment.
A person suffers from jaundice when the bile duct is obstructed and the bile juice released from the liver does not reach the intestine. This bile juice is absorbed by the blood instead of going to the duodenum. Thus causing yellowing of skin and eyes.
