Correct answer is (b) Pilot-Plant Scale

Easy explanation: Microbial leaching techniques are divided into three main groups depending on their working volume- Laboratory Scale, Pilot-Plant Scale & Industrial Scale. Pilot plant scale is concerned with <10^3 while laboratory scale is concerned with upto 10dm^3 and industrial scale with >10m³. Commercial Scale is not a part of the three techniques.
