Right answer is (d) Degradability

The best I can explain: Degradability is not a hazardous characteristic of the waste; it is always a good approach if the waste can be degraded safely without causing any major damage to the environment. But toxicity, ignitability, corrosiveness and reactivity are a few serious hazardous characteristics of the waste, which if not treated poses serious health hazards and environmental damage.
