Correct choice is (c) Bio-degradable
 
Easy explanation: The biodegradable waste includes any organic matter obtained from plants or animals that can be put into deep pits in the ground and be left for the natural breakdown. This breakdown can be done by micro-organisms and other living things by composting, aerobic digestion, anaerobic digestion using different enzymes to obtain essential food and nutrients.
