answer is A.an increase in sugar content of guard cell.
explanation;
Opening and closing of stomata occurs due to turgor changes in guard cells. When guard cells are turgid, stomatal pore is open while in flaccid conditions, the stomatal aperture. Guard cells are opening and closing the pores of a stomata. they cells open the pores by stretching and closing by shrinking.

Guard cells can undergo photosynthesis, so during the daytime they they synthesize glucose which in turn increase the solute concentration. This causes the guard cells to contract, thereby opening the stomatal pores
