The answer is D.

The rate of photosynthesis keeps rising until 40 degrees Celsius. Above the temperature of 40 degrees, the enzymes responsible for photosynthesis lose their shape and cannot synthesize glucose anymore. Hence photosynthesis experiences a steep drop and around 50-60 degrees, the enzymes get completely destroyed hence photosynthesis stops completely.

Photosynthesis is controlled by enzymes. High temperature will denature the enzymes. So the graph is the same as that of the enzyme.
