Correct choice is (c) O2
 
The best I can explain: Photosynthesis is a process in which producers (green plants) in the presence of CO2, water, sunlight, and chlorophyll yield energy and oxygen is released in the form of gas. The green plants utilize atmospheric CO2 and release O2 which is utilized by other organisms.
