Correct option is (b) Elimination

The best explanation: Membrane permeability rate, rate of active transport, competitive effect and rate of active transport are the factors that influence the uptake of toxicants during bio accumulation, whereas, Elimination is the process that is responsible for removal of toxicants from the body of an organism.
