Correct choice is (d) Fermentation

Explanation: Photo-metabolism, oxidation, hydrolysis and reduction are the various phenomenon which together make up the biological and chemical phenomenon for decomposition of the pesticides by degrading it in the process. However, these phenomena cannot be distinguished under natural circumstances. Fermentation is not a pesticide degradation process that degrades the toxic compounds.
