4. Which of the following decreases the risk of secondary contamination in the physical method of soil remediation?
(A) Concentration
(B) Reduced cost
(C) Quorum quenching
(D) Lyophilization
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: Concentration of contaminants reduces the further risk of contamination as it involves addition of no reagents, lower energy demands leads to reduction in cost level but doesn’t reduce chances of secondary contamination, quorum quenching leads to inhibition of quorum sensing and lyophilization is a process of freeze drying.
