Jute fibres deteriorate quickly because

(a) cellulose content is high

(b) lignin content is high

(c) cellulose content is low

(d) lignin content is low

(a) The reason for quick detoriation of jute fibres is its high cellulose content. The cell walls of jute contains a major portion of cellulose and low lignin levels. Microorganisms find it hard to decompose lignin but as cellulose is used by them as food, decomposition of jute becomes easy.
