Hello Student
Correct answer is 4. gonads
Gonads does not secret protenaceous hormones because it secretes steroidal hormones for example
Oestrogen Progesterone etc.
Pancreas secrets insulin which helps in regulation of blood glucose.
thyroid hormone secretes thyroxine
parathyroid gland secretes parathyroid hormone or parathyrin.

The correct answer is (4) Gonads.
Gonads secrete steroid hormones which are also known as sex hormones.
These are steroid hormones that interact with vertebrate androgen or estrogen receptors.the two main classes of sex steroids are androgens and estrogens, of which the most important human derivatives are testosterone and estradiol, respectively. Other contexts will include progestogens as a third class of sex steroids, distinct from androgens and estrogens.
