slime moulds
Correct answer: (b) 
Solution: Methanogens belong to archaebactera. It contains three mahor classes of primitive bacteria, i.e. methanogens, halophilic and thermoacidophilic. Methanogens are strict anaerobes, present in the gut, of serveral ruminant animals (e.g. cows, etc.) and are responsible for production of mthane gas from the dung of these animals.
