Solution

The correct option is A

Spinach and beet root have more calcium oxalate.


Calcium oxalate is an excretory product of plants stored in vacuoles of plant cells and they are the main components of kidney stones. This compound is abundant in spinach and beet roots. So they are not included in diet to avoid  further complications in a person suffering from kidney stones.
