(d)

Glucagon is a peptide hormone, which plays an important role in maintaining the normal blood glucose level. Glucagon acts mainly on the liver cells (hepatocytes) and stimulates glycogenolysis resulting in an increased blood sugar (hyperglycemia).

In addition, this hormones stimulates the process of gluconeogenesis which also contributes to hyperglycemia. Glucagon reduces the cellular glucoses uptake and utilization. Thus, glucagon is hyperglycemic hormone
