Hello,

Welcome to the Just Answer Website.

The epidermis contains a layer of cells called the stratum germinativum where:

New cells are continually produced. Once a cell that has originated in the stratum germinativum undergoes what is known as a miotic division, the new cell will go through a process known as keratinization as it makes its way to the surface.

So the answer is:

D)New cells are continually produced.

Please feel free to ask if you have any other question.
