Ans : (b) C3 plants respond to higher temperature with enhanced photosynthesis while C4 plants have  much lower temperature optimum.

Explanation :

C plants have RuBisCo enzyme which gets activated on higher carbon dioxide concentration.C4 plants have PEP as major CO2 acceptor. Photosynthetic activity is mainly affected by enzymes rather than temperatures. High temperature leads to destruction of photosynthetic pigments.
