Solution

The correct option is C 2 and 3
Non-biodegradable waste is a type of waste that cannot be broken down into its base compounds by microorganisms, air, moisture or soil in a reasonable period of time. This type of waste is an environmental concern, as it threatens the environment and causes disposal problems. Plastics, detergents, PVC and glass all are non biodegradable.
Thus, the correct answer is '2 and 3.'
