Right answer is (a) cellulose

For explanation: Cellulose is an easily available material which does not cause any harm to the blood or body. It is cheap and with certain tampering, it’s strength can be increased. It has a good pore size, small enough to stop the blood cells but large enough to pass out the waste products.
