According to Arrhenius equation k = k0 exp(-E/RT). So rate constant should increase with increase in temperature.

The Rate constant increases.

It will be Increases.

k = k0 exp(-E/RT).

ln k =ln k0 + ln (-E/RT).

From the above equation, ln k is inversely prepositional to T.

So increase in T decrease in ln k.

Removing ln will exponentiation decrease in value of k.

ln k =ln k0 + ln (-E/RT).

From the above equation, ln k is inversely prepositional to T.

So increase in T decrease in ln k.

Removing ln will exponentiation decrease in value of k.

Option A is the right answer because K (rate constant) is directly proportional to the temperature.
