The correct answer is (b) Heavy metals

The best explanation: Battery recycling is very vital as it contains heavy metals like cadmium, lead and mercury which if comes in contact with the environment is very harmful. Hence, should be handled properly. Odor and texture is not hazardous; plastics is a major concern but is not related to the batteries waste.
