Correct Answer: (a) Woollen shawl

Explanation: Wool can be obtained without killing the animal. It comes from the fleece/hair of wool yielding animals such as sheep, goats, yak, etc.

Silk is obtained by killing the pupae of silkmoths.

Fur and leather are animal products that are obtained from the skin of animals like cows, goats, crocodiles,etc by killing them.
