I think in every kind of cells transcription factor play significant role.
As if there is no signaling cell will undergo apoptosis.
So
B. nuclear transcription factor.
Would appreciate an explanation with answer.

B) nuclear transcription factor
RNA expression=transcription so that eliminates all the other options
mito, perisomoal proteins and vitamins are distractors i think
ribosomes are needed for translation, not transcription so that leaves transcription factors.

Idea! could it be ribosome

could it be ribosome become its asking about expression of RNa and not DNa
Rna is expressed by means of translation that occur in association with ribosomes???
