Correct option is A)

The right against exploitation is one of the most vital fundamental rights given by the Indian Constitution. These rights aim at protecting citizens from being subjugated to environmental, domestic and work hazards. Article 23- (a) :- freedom from slavery, beggary or other forms of forced labour. The Stae has the power to introduce compulsory service for such persons in order to stop the practice. The State can not discriminate on the grounds of religion, caste, race, colour, etc. 

Article 24 of the Indian Constitution prohibits abolition of employment of children below the age of 14 years in dangerous jobs like factories and mines. The practice of bonded labour has also been declared unlawful.
