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.
