    All alternatives are correct.

    Explanation:

    During the weight loss process, cellular mitochondria transform the energy reserve arranged as body fat into heat, ATP, water and carbon dioxide. Therefore, none of these forms is "more likely", and fat loss occurs as a result of the release of all these products from cellular metabolism.
