To begin the chemical process of photochemical smog development the following conditions must occur.
1. sunlight
2. the production of oxides of nitrogen (NOx)
3. the production of volatile organic compounds
4. the temperature greater than 18 degrees celsius. 
reactions :
O3 + NO  ------------>   NO2 + O2
NO + RO2 ---------------->  NO2 + other products
NO2 + sunlight ----------->  NO + O
O + O2 ------------> O3
NO2 + R  --------------------> peroxyacetyl nitrate.
hence ,option (a) is correct.
