Solution

The correct option is A Eichhornia
The Eichhornia , commonly known as common water hyacinth, is an aquatic plant native to the Amazon basin, and is often a highly problematic invasive species outside its native range . It grows at an alarming rate and spreads on the surface of the water body. This cut out of the light and it also causes an increase in the oxygen demand. Thus, causing the death of fishes and other aquatic organisms.
So the correct answer is 'Eichhornia'
