Correct option is (b) To produce electricity

To explain I would say: The primary objective of the steam power plant is to produce electricity and then serving as base load plant to hydel or nuclear power plant comes as second priority. Steam power plants produce 86% of electricity. And the efficiency of steam power plant is typically 33%-48%.
