    b. producers need more money to make and distribute goods.

    Explanation:

    The explanation is in the name of the concept.

    The cost-push inflation is caused by the cost of producing a good. It's usually the result of an increase in costs of raw materials or of labor. Then the producer needs to forward that additional cost down the distribution line to the final consumer.

    This price hike could be temporary (due to bad weather that increased the scarcity of a fruit for example), but once the prices go up, they rarely return to their previous value.
