an organelle tried to adapt the low temperature . for this purpose the organelle accumulate more amount of :1 saturated hydrocarbon fatty acid chain in membrane or 2 unsaturated fatty acid chains in their membrane explain with the reason

Dear student,

The answer is option 1. 
One of the important characteristic associated with cold acclimation is the increase in the degree of saturation of membrane fatty acids. This leads to higher membrane fluidity which increases the functionality of membrane bound substrate transporters and membrane bound proteins at low temperatures.
