This question was addressed to me in an interview for job.
The above asked question is from Biodiversity Conservation in section Biodiversity and Conservation of Biology – Class 12
Right answer is (a) Maintaining the ecological processes
To explain I would say: The materials or substances (biotic and abiotic) occurring naturally and without the actions of humankind are known as natural resources. The conservation of natural resources is important for the preservation of biological diversity and maintaining ecological processes.
