Solution

The correct option is D Hydroponics
Cultivation of plants by placing the roots in the nutrient solution (in complete absence of soil) is called hydroponics. It is necessary to aerate the solution to provide roots with adequate oxygen supply. The result obtained from soil-less culture may then be used to determine deficiencies under field conditions.
So, the correct answer is 'Hydroponics'
