The correct choice is (c) Color

The best explanation: Quantity, concentration, physical or chemical properties or infectious characteristics are important to hazardous wastes as they define their properties and categories them into solid wastes that are hazardous to the next environment or humans. But color is not a very important property to define the characteristics of hazardous wastes as it doesn’t interfere with the property.
