Dear student 
The sympathetic and the parasympathetic nervous system are parts of the autonomic nervous system. These systems work in balance with each other and directly or indirectly affect almost every structure in the body. The sympathetic nervous system has an active "pushing" function, the parasympathetic has mainly a relaxing function.

The sympathetic nervous system is involved in the stimulation of activities that prepare the body for action, such as increasing the heart rate, increasing the release of sugar from the liver into the blood, and other generally considered as fight-or-flight responses (responses that serve to fight off or retreat from danger). 

The parasympathetic nervous system activates tranquil functions, such as stimulating the secretion of saliva or digestive enzymes into the stomach.

The autonomic nervous system controls the involuntary actions. The secretory elements of the major salivary glands are supplied with parasympathetic (cholinergic) nerve fibres. Sympathetic stimulation reduces the flow of saliva. So, the correct answer is option D.
