The correct answer is (c)

Work Step by Step

As we can see from the initial flask, nitrogen is the limiting reagent, and hydrogen is in excess. There are 2 molecules of nitrogen, enough to form 4 molecules of ammonia. 6 molecules of hydrogen are used up in the reaction, and the final mixture has 4 molecules of ammonia and 2 molecules of hydrogen. So, the correct answer is (c).
