22400ml of $CO_2$ gas =$6.023\times 10^{23}$molecules at NTP
$\therefore$ 44g of $CO_2$ gas =$6.023\times 10^{23}$ molecules
22g of $CO_2$ gas =$\large\frac{6.023\times 10^{23}}{44}$$\times 22$
$\Rightarrow 3.0115\times 10^{23}$ molecules
22.4L of $CO_2$ gas =$6.023\times 10^{23}$ molecules at NTP.
$\therefore$ 11.2L of $CO_2$ gas =$\large\frac{6.023\times 10^{23}}{22.4}$$\times 11.2$
$\Rightarrow 3.0115\times 10^{23}$ molecules
1 mole of $CO_2$ gas at NTP=$6.023\times 10^{23}$ molecules
0.1 mole of $CO_2$ gas at NTP=$\large\frac{6.023\times 10^{23}}{1}$$\times 0.1$
$\Rightarrow 6.023\times 10^{22}$ molecules
Hence (d) is the correct option.
