  1. Bio = dead organisms; Mass = amount of heat contained; Biomass = amount of heat energy contained in dead organisms.

  2. Bio = Liquid; Mass = matter contained; Biomass = amount of liquid contained in any matter.

  4. Bio = life or living; Mass = matter contained; Biomass = matter produced from living beings.


Solution

The correct option is D
