Which pyramid is developed to represent the total amount of living material in a food chain?

(b) Age structure
(c) Pyramid of energy

I got this question during an online interview.
My doubt stems from Ecological Pyramids in division Ecosystem of Biology – Class 12
Correct answer is (d) Pyramid of biomass
Explanation: The total amount of living material (biomass) in a food chain is represented using the pyramid of biomass. The living matter at each level is represented in this pyramid. Depending upon the nature of the food chain, the pyramid of biomass is inverted or upright.
