    may I respond? the answer is a (lowering the temperature). Base on the law of ideal gasses PV = nRT, where P is pressure, V volume, n the number of moles, R konstanta and T temperatur. From this formula we can see the pressure conditions P = nRT/V. b is wrong because of reducing the volume of means increasing gas pressure. c is also wrong because adding more gas (n) also adding more gas pressure, Correct Me If I Wrong ok..,
