(d)

About 7% of carbon dioxide is transported as dissolved in plasma, 23% as carbaminohaemoglobin and 70% as bicarbonates. Most of the carbon dioxide that dissolved in blood plasma reacts with water to form carbonic acid. All carbonic acid of RBCs dissociates into hydrogen and bicarbonate ions, that bicarbonate ions diffuse from RBCs to blood plasma.
