Correct choice is (d) Phosphorous
 
Easy explanation: The respiration is the process in which the organisms exchange gases with the environment. In this, the organisms take in the atmospheric oxygen for various cellular activities and release carbon dioxide. Phosphorous is not released during respiration in the atmosphere.
