Hi greatone100-ga,

The answer to your question is (D) All.

Oxygen demand in the heart is increased by:

-Heart rate. 
-Preload and Afterload. 

Works Cited:

"Management of ACS in the 90s -- Basics of Treatment"

Search Strategy:

Searched in Google using the following terms:
"oxygen demand" heart preload

I then used to find the definition of the word
myocardial, which is defined as "The muscular tissue of the heart."

I hope this information is of assistance to you.  If you need any
addition clarification please let me know.
