Right answer is (d) Toxicant concentration

The best explanation: The concentration of the toxicant is very much dependent upon the accumulation of xenobiotics, whereas, in aquatic organism, bio accumulation of toxic materials in organisms occurs via several phases like Accumulation phase, Steady-state, Elimination phase.
