Question Normochromic Normocytic Anemia + Azotemia

A 68-year-old man has had low back pain over the past 2 months. Laboratory studies show a normochromic, normocytic anemia and azotemia. Serum and urine calcium concentrations are abnormally increased, and urinalysis shows excessive protein (4+) and proteinaceous casts. Bone marrow examination is most likely to show uncontrolled proliferation of which of the following cells?

(A) Basophils
(B) Lymphocytes
(C) Macrophages
(D) Plasma cells
(E) Reticulocytes
