Organelles have very specialized functions. Analyze the diagram of the mitochondrion below.

What distinguishing characteristic facilitates one of the main functions that the mitochondrion provides​​ for the cell?

"Mitochondrion." Wikipedia. Web. 15 Feb. 2016. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitochondrion

A

A double membrane consisting of an inner and outer membrane. The double membrane provides insulation to help with the storage of energy.

B

The mitochondrial DNA that permits the mitochondria to make its own proteins.

C

The matrix granules that are cations and help to regulate the ions in the cell.

D

A double membrane consisting of an inner and outer membrane. The inner membrane is folded which makes more surface area and thus allows this organelle to store more energy in the form of ATP.
