  1. Let's just eliminate some answers.
    You know A can't be right because there are a number of "essential" inorganic compounds.
    You know B can't be right--why do we need H2 and O2?
    What about C?
    D is ludicrous. I know people who live to be 100 and never at fish in their life. So what's wrong with C? You know it can't be A, B, D.
