    The answer should be (D) Interleukin-1.Integrase, RT, and protease are all common components of a RNA virus.  Gp120 is encoded by the env gene, enable the virus to attach to and fuse with target cells to initiate the infectious cycle.Interleuken-1 is a cytokine produced by macrophages to induce inflammation... so it is not directly involved in HIV reproduction.
