Since the process is isothermal, PV = constant.
Therefore, pressure is inversely proportional to volume.
Since the pressure increases from A to B, volume decreases. Therefore, work is done on the gas.
Internal energy is constant for the above process.
Therefore the correct answer is both (A) and (B)
