    The correct option is (2) mitochondria

    Explanation:

    Mitochondria is known to be the powerhouse of a cell. As cellular respiration takes place in mitochondria, hence mitochondria provides the cells with the main source of energy i. e ATP.

    To maintain a concentration difference, energy is required. This energy comes from ATP molecules which are made in the mitochondria. Hence, option 2 is correct.

    Other options are not correct because all other organelles cannot produce ATP which is required to maintain a concentration difference.
