Option A is a Non-polar amino acids. Right?

Membrane is hydrophobic in nature. This is due to hydrophobic proteins and hydrophobic proteins made by hydrophobic amino acids.

Membrane-embedded proteins must be hydrophobic. So we need to choose which option of amino acids have hydrophobic are chains.

And charged are groups would disrupt membrane stability. We need to choose unchanged amino acids.
