The correct option is (b) Nitrogen deposition

To explain: Nitrogen deposition is the major cause of environmental degradation as increased nitogen in the soil and water leads to loss of species and shifts occur in plant communities, whereas, Bio-magnification is the process by which toxic substances get deposited in the food chain, quorum quenching leads to inhibition of quorum sensing and lyophilization is a process of freeze drying.
