Right choice is (a) 900-1100°C

To elaborate: 900-1100°C is the optimum temperature for incinerators which operates in the combustion zone which results in good combustion and also protects the inside walls of the incinerator. Temperature above and lower this range wouldn’t result in good combustion and might harm the incinerator as well.
