Correct answer is (b) Pyramid of number
 
To elaborate: The pyramid of the number is inverted or upright, depending upon the nature of the food chain (organic and inorganic matter). The pyramid of the number represents the number of individuals at every level (producers forming the bottom and high carnivores forming the tip).
