Expert Answer:

(d) Purkinje fibers conduct the impulses at high velocity (about 4 m/sec) throughout the ventricles.The rapid conduction through the Purkinje fibers ensures that different parts of ventricles are excited almost simultaneously that greatly increases the efficiency of heart as a pump.
