Arrow Tartrate-resistant Acid Phosphatase (TRAP)

yes, you are right
It's associated with Hairy Cell Leukemia but there's another thing that we should be thinking of when we see tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase in the question stem or in the option which is
Osteoclastic activity because this enzyme is normally present in osteoclasts so disease with excessive osteoclastic activity will show high levels of TRAP examples of such diseases are
Gaucher disease, Osteoporosis, Osteoclastoma, Lytic bone tumors, and others.
