Right option is (c) Amphibians
 
Explanation: Amphibians have more species diversity in the Western Ghats than the Eastern Ghats. A chain of mountains running parallel to India’s western coast (Sahyadri) and the mountain ranges run parallel to the Bay of Bengal are the western and eastern ghats respectively.
