The correct choice is (a) Slow transport inside the cell

Easiest explanation: Disposal is a method that is used for disposing waste, whereas, gasification is the degradation of organic matter in anaerobic conditions and incineration involves chemical reaction which burns the waste generated. Whereas, slow transport of metal inside the cell after binding to the surface ligand of the metals helps in incorporation of heavy metals inside microbes.
