An element playing important role in nitrogen fixation is 

  • Molybdenum

  • copper

  • manganese

  • zinc

Answer

A.

Molybdenum

Molybdenum is absorbed as molybdate by plants. It is involved in nitrogen metabolism including nitrogen fixation. It is a component of enzyme nitrogenase and acts as an enzyme activator. Its deficiency cause chlorosis and necrosis, whiptail of cauliflower and premature leaf fall. 

Copper is absorbed by the plant in ionic form. Its deficiency causes necrosis, die back in Citrus, reclamation in legumes.

Manganese is absorbed by the plants as a bivalent ion. It acts as the enzyme activator. Its deficiency causes interveinal chlorosis as well as yellowing of starch and their subsequent degenerate. 

Zinc is needed for biosynthesis of IAA and also acts as the enzyme activator. Its deficiency causes chlorosis, little leaf, rosette, the white bud of maize and mottling of leaves.
