Solution

The correct option is A X is a weed; Y is a weedicide
Field crops are infected by a large number of weeds, insects, pests and diseases. Weeds are unwanted plants which take up the nutrients and reduces the growth of the crops.
Weeds like xanthium, can be controlled by spraying the right amount of weedicides at the right time.
Insecticides and pesticides are used to control insects and pests respectively. Fertilisers are commercially produced plant nutrients.
