Right Answer is:

Enriched uranium

SOLUTION

Enriched uranium is a type of uranium in which the percent composition of uranium-235 (written 235U) has been artificially increased through the process of isotope separation.

Enriched uranium is required as a fuel in a nuclear reactor if light water is used as moderator and coolant because light water has low moderating efficiency.

The moderating efficiency is nearly 80 times higher for heavy water than for light water.
