I think there are these four options: plasma protein, electrolytes, glucose, hormones: of which plasma protein will be the answer.


Glomerulus is a tuft of capillary vessels placed inside Bowman's capsule. Filtration of blood occurs here but the pores of the sieve like structure are smaller in size to allow plasma proteins to enter the capsular filtrate.

Electrolytes, glucose, etc. enter the filtrate but are reabsorbed later by tubular parts of nephron .
