Solution :-

c) Nuclear energy

Bio-mass is obtained from the dead plants and animal wastes. In these dead plants and animals, there is a chemical change as they react with water and sunlight. But nuclear energy is obtained by fusion and fission of atoms, resulting in tremendous release of energy. Both nuclear fusion and fission can be carried out in the absence of the sunlight.

Wood is a part of plant, gobar-gas is obtained from the animal dung and coal is obtained by the dead remains of the plants and animals. Therefore, they are all bio-mass energy products.
