The correct choice is (a) Bio-accumulation

The best I can explain: Immobilization uses Bio-accumulation processes, Bio-magnification is the process by which toxic substances get deposited in the food chain, bio-degradation is the process that leads to degradation of compounds with the help of bacteria, Bio remediation is a process that uses microbial processes and converts toxic substances into less toxic or usable forms.
