Ependymal cells.
Because they're involved in the production of CSF.

Correct Answer annswer

The correct answer is E.
Ependymal cells are found in the inner epithelial lining of ventricles and are involved in CSF production. Astrocytes are glial cells that support and repair scarred brain tissue. Microglia are CNS phagocytes of mesodermal origin. Oligodendroglia are also glial cells which form myelin around multiple CNS axons. Schwann cells myelinate around a single PNS axon.
