The correct answer is (b) All mammals
 
The explanation: All mammals are capable of thermoregulation and osmoregulation. Thermoregulation is the ability to maintain constant body temperature under changing environmental temperatures while osmoregulation is the ability to maintain a constant osmotic concentration of body fluids under high solute concentrations.
