Right choice is (c) Agricultural pesticides

The best I can explain: Agricultural pesticides causes contamination of the whole habitat by its release into the environment causing damage to the surroundings. Cow dung is a natural fertilizer which helps in the proper growth of the plants, whereas, water and crops themselves don’t pose any threat of contamination to the environment.
