Right answer is (a) t-t0

Explanation: ∆t=t-t0 i.e. the difference in exposure time to exposure beginning time.

t=Exposure end time

t0=Exposure beginning time C=0

C=Concentration of xenobiotic in organism, at steady-state

B=The initial concentration of the xenobiotic present in the organism at the time of exposure.
