Correct option is (b) That occurs in a greenhouse
 
The explanation is: A greenhouse, also called a glasshouse is a building made of transparent material, in which plants such as flowers and vegetables requiring regulated climatic conditions are grown. The word greenhouse gives rise to the term ‘Greenhouse effect’.
