$c$
The greatest or larger degree of any term or variable of the polynomial is known as degree of the polynomial. The leading term can be defined as the term of having the greatest or larger degree. As per the leading coefficient test the leading coefficient is $1$; which is a positive term and the degree of polynomial is $3$ ; which is odd property. Thus, our answer will be $c$.
