Dear Tapasranjan

AB line passes through origin so slope of line joining the origin and A  , and slope of line joining the origin and B will be same

d-0 /a-0   = e-0 /b-0   = f-0 /c-0

or

 d/a = e/b  =f/c = k   .....................1

option a is correct

now use distance formula

a2 +b2+ c2 = p2   

and

d2 + e2 + f2 =q2

now

 put value of d,e,f in terms of a,b,c

 k2 ( a2 +b2+ c2 ) = q2 

 k2 ( p2 ) = q2  

 k = q/p


now let  ad +eb + fc

          = k(a2 +b2+ c2 )

          =q/p  ( p2)

          =pq

  option b is also correct
