Yes, you are correct. Growth is right.
Mitosis is the division of one cell into two duplicate daughter cells, and is the main method by which organisms grow.

Yes, I believe you're correct to choose D.

Yes, you are correct. D is the answer. Temperature regulation and sensation.
Here is a GOOGLE search on the subject.
Because it interfaces with the environment, skin plays a very important role in protecting (the body) against pathogens. Its other functions are insulation, temperature regulation, sensation, synthesis of vitamin D, and the protection of vitamin B folates. Severely damaged skin will try to heal by forming scar tissue. This is often discolored and depigmented.
