Correct choice is (b) Eltonian pyramids
 
Easiest explanation: A graphical representation of the relationship between the individuals present in various trophic levels of a food chain is called an ecological pyramid. Ecological pyramids are alternatively called Eltonian pyramids. The ecological pyramids were formulated by Charles Elton in 1927.
