The correct answer is (a) Phyto-extraction

Best explanation: Phytoextraction is a process which comes under phytoremediation where plants can be used to remove hazardous elements from soil or may be water like heavy metals, whereas, mashing with adhesives or fibers is not related to the process of removal of metals from plants and watering doesn’t remove heavy metals.
