i will go with 4 Gastrointestinal epithelium, coz as i remember Glut 2 should be present at the places where bidirectional transport is present, and all the other options have bidirectional transport other than GIT, but i am still a bit

4) gastro intestinal epithelial cells

Don't think it's pct, cuz that's how the glucose that were transported into the pct cells from the lumen exits the tubular cell to reach the peritubular capillaries.
