    Option B

    Explanation:

    If the demand curve is elastic that means a small change in price will lead to greater change in the quantity demanded

    On the other hand if supply curve is very inelastic that means change in price will not have grater impact on the supply.

    Therefore, the burden of increase tax will be borne by buyers not on the suppliers because suppliers are less affected in this case.
