Correct choice is (a) True

Easy explanation: The intracellular machinery of the bacteria that accumulates metals has the potential to degrade the metals to a much less toxic form, as, they use enzymes to convert the toxic metal into less toxic form in the intracellular region, which further does not result in accumulation.
