Correct option is
C

Autotrophic

Fungi are heterotrophic. They can be saprophytic because they feed on organic remains by secreting enzymes and then absorbing the digested food. And there are pathogenic fungi as well and most of them are parasites of a plant.
Hence, the correct answer is 'Autotrophic'.
