Correct option is A)

In case of inferior goods, the income affect is negative I.e. income and demand is inversely related. When the price of the goods decreases the consumer will purchase less of that commodity and use the extra purchasing power to purchase superior quality of goods. Hence, with the rise in real income/purchasing power the equilibrium quantity as well as the price will reduce.
