The correct answer is (b) Oily sludge

Easiest explanation: Oily sludge is a waste that accumulates in motor, it is basically a solid blended waste produced in the petroleum industry and is not produced in the agricultural lands. Larger yield of the crops in the agricultural lands, Reduced energy input and labor, thereby producing higher quality crops are the basic objectives of using pesticide in agricultural lands.
