    b. recessionary gap to an inflationary gap.

    Explanation:

    This is because, since the economy was already healing itself steadily but slowly, reaching the natural level of the GDP was expected. However, an implementation of the expansionary monetary policy will only increase the nominal GDP (due to the increase in money supply), not the real GDP since only the monetary value of goods and services is likely to increase, not the physical amount of the goods.
