    d. it could be any of these three types of microbes

    Explanation:

    Cell wall made of peptidoglycan is a characteristic feature of bacteria that are otherwise unicellular prokaryotes.

    Fungi have a chitinous cell wall and may be unicellular or multicellular. The example of unicellular fungi is yeast.

    Protists are unicellular eukaryotes and have a cell wall made of cellulose.

    Ribosomes are the site of protein synthesis and are present in all the organisms. Bacteria have 70S type of ribosomes while the eukaryotic fungi and protists have 80S ribosomes.
