    Boyles's law relates the pressure and volume of a confined gas at a constant temperature.

    Boyles's law can be represented mathematically as

    PV = k

    or, as

    P1V1 = P2V2

    Pressure is inversely proportional to volume. Go with (a).

    ======== Follow up ========

    PV = k is an inverse relationship. As P increases, V decreases, so that k remains constant. The answer from Computernerd is incorrect.
