Dear student,
 
That is they grow only fungus in their garden, which is not easily done. These  insects are exclusively mycophagous, i.e., they eat fungi. In a young colony, the queen and the first workers to hatch from eggs . Termites have bacteria in their gut that allow them to digest cellulose and thereby recycling plant material. So. the correct option is "B" (Termites".
