Solution

The correct option is C Dumping of plastics
Humans dump all kinds of wastes which includes domestic, industrial and medicinal wastes into the water bodies. These wastes contaminate water bodies, making them unfit for drinking and other purposes. A lot of plastic wastes are being dumped into the water bosies, which pollutes them and thereby causing great harm to the marine life.
