The correct answer is (b) Meet with the deficit of nutrients
 
For explanation I would say: The function of the reservoir that is the atmosphere and the Earth’s crust is to meet with the deficit of nutrients. This deficit occurs due to an imbalance in the rate of influx and efflux of various nutrients.
