What does ac and mc stand for. I think it is C, because they have both connected and this is the minimum cost for them both to output the same amount.
Hopefully someone else will reinforce what I have said or give you the right answer d:

I'd say E.

I'm assuming you have copied out the possible answers correctly...

A) False. Total costs are minimised at output = 0.
B) False. Marginal costs are positive, therefore total costs are rising.
C) False. Total costs are minimised at output = 0.
D) False. Average variable cost is the difference between average (total) cost and average fixed costs. Average fixed costs are not the same as marginal costs.
E) True. Marginal costs are positive, therefore total costs are rising.
