    The correct option is e. tissue composed of several layers of flat cells resting on a basement membrane

    Explanation:

    When you look in the miscorscope the structure of a stratified squamous epitellium, you can see several layers of flat cells resting on a basement membrane. In this kind of epitellium not all cells are flat, some have a different shape. As you can imagine, only one of the layers are in touch with the basement membrane.

    Another feature of the stratified squamous epitellium is that it can have keratin or not. Examples of this epitellium are found in skin or esophagus.
