The correct answer is (d) Domestic waste

Easy explanation: Domestic waste doesn’t contain any infectious agents and is totally degradable in nature but animal waste contains animal tissue and organs, microbiological waste contains microbiological specimen wastes, chemical waste contains disinfectant chemicals. So, all of these wastes are treated as Biomedical wastes.
