The correct option is (A).
Molar heat capacity at constant temperature (CT) is defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of 1 g of gas through 1̊ C keeping its temperature constant. But it is impossible to rise the temperature of 1 g of gas through 1̊ C keeping its temperature constant. So the two statements contradict to each other. Thus the most likely value for molar heat capacity at constant temperature (CT) will be zero. Therefore option (A) is correct.
