Solution

The correct option is D Cocaine
Coca is a plant from the genus Erythroxylum and is native to northwestern South America. The use of coca has a long tradition in South America. The leaves contain up to 2% cocaine in a dried state. Although the genus Erythroxylum includes several hundred species, only Erythroxylum coca and Erythroxylum novogranatense contain significant amounts of cocaine.
So, the correct answer is- cocaine.
