Solution

The correct option is C increases

Speed of sound in a gas is inversely proportional to the square root of density of the gas. That is, the speed of sound in a gas increases if its density decreases.

If the temperature of gas increases, then the density of gas decreases and hence, the speed of sound in gas increases.
