The correct option is (c) Membrane permeability

Easiest explanation: Capacity, immunity from interference by wastes, efficiency, selectivity and ease of desorption etc. are the major factor related to industrial process of microbial metal recovery, whereas, one of the basic mechanisms of antimicrobial resistance is modification in Membrane permeability but it’s not related to industrial process of microbial metal recovery.
