b) Liver cells
c) Red blood cells
d) White blood cells

Kindly answer sir/mam.

Dear student,
Please find below the solution to the asked query
The correct option is c.

Red blood cells lack cell organelle like mitochondria and hence can perform only anaerobic respiration. Thus, red blood cells are not capable of metabolising glucose to carbon-dioxide aerobically.

Hope this information will clear your doubts about the mammalian cells not capable of metabolising glucose to carbon-dioxide aerobically.
