(c)

(a)    is true as in case of conductors either the conduction & valence band overlap or conduction band is partially filled.

(b)    is true as insulators have energy gap of the safe 5 to 10eV.

(c)    is false as resistivity (opposite of conductivity) decreases with increase in temperature.

(d)    is true as with increase in temperature more and more electrons jump to the conduction band. So, conductivity increases.
