Ans : (b) Auxin accumulates on the shaded side, stimulating greater cell elongation there.

Explanation :

Auxins induce cell elongation. In a differentially illuminated plant, they accumulate in the shaded part, causing elongation of the cells in the shaded part. This unequal elongation on two sides causes the plant to curve or bend towards the light source i.e., phototropic curvature.
