The correct option is (d) Fungi

Easy explanation: Pesticides, articulated with other chemical reagents, include Insecticide, Acaricides, Nematicides, bactericides etc. So, Insecticide usually helps to kill and control the population of insects, Acaricides is used to control the population of mites, Nematicides are generally used to kill and control the population of nematodes in various places like houses, buildings and agricultural lands. But Fungi is not a pesticide, fungicide is used to control the growth of fungus.
