The correct answer is (a) Readily biodegradable compounds

The best explanation: Readily biodegradable compounds and wastes with high moisture content are best suited for anaerobic treatment as the anaerobic digestion of wastes is carried out under anaerobic conditions where the temperature and moisture is controlled. So, moisture content is high and is highly degradable and temperature need not be very high.
