By IS:456 provisions for the beam.

Min tension reinforcement required is given by option A.

Min compression reinforcement = Nil.

IS 456:2000 in clause 26.5.1.1 suggests the following minimum tensile reinforcement for beams:

As = 0.85 bd/fy.

Ismail said: (Sep 11, 2017)  
I think Minimum tension happen at max shear so the right answer is (B).

Siva said: (Nov 22, 2017)  
I think the right answer is [c].

Because units are matching here.

The minimum area of tension reinforcement.shall not less then, As=0.85bd/fy.
The maximum area of tension reinforcement shall not exceed 0.04bD.
Refer IS456-2000.
clause no.26.5.1.1.
