Solution

The correct option is A

Composting


The biological decomposition of organic matter under controlled conditions is better known as composting. This process helps in reducing materials dumped in landfills and can be considered as environmentally conscious way of reducing wastes. This method can therefore be used to recycle organic material into humus-like material, which is a good fertilizer for plants.
