Right answer is (a) Grazing cattle
 
To explain I would say: The cattle egret shows commensalism with grazing cattle. It is a white-colored bird that eats insects and flies wandering around cattle. It is a relationship in which the egret is benefited while the cattle are neither harmed nor benefited.
