Solution

The correct option is A Error and damage theories

A. Error and damage theories - emphasize environmental assaults to living organisms that induce cumulative damage at various levels as the cause of aging.

B. Hormonal theory - hormones or reduced production of hormones might cause aging has also led some to believe that they could be an anti-aging elixir.

C. Immunological theory - asserts that the process of human aging is, in fact, a mild and generalized form of prolonged auto-immune phenomenon.

D. Programmed senescence theory - refers to the idea that senescence in humans and other organisms is purposely caused by evolved biological mechanisms in order to obtain an evolutionary advantage.

So, the correct option is ‘Error and damage theories’.
