Solution:

The correct answer is: at the intersection of at least two constraints.
  
Definition:
A linear programming problem (LP) is an optimization problem for which: 
1. We attempt to maximize (or minimize) a linear function of the decision variables. (objective function) 
2. The values of the decision variables must satisfy a set of constraints, each of which must be a linear inequality or linear equality. 
3. A sign restriction on each variable. 
For each variable xi the sign restriction can either say 
(a) xi ≥ 0, 
(b) xi ≤ 0, 
(c) xi unrestricted (urs)

Hope this might help you.

Solution:

The Correct Answer of this question is 
C. at the intersection of at least two constraints.
 

Explanation:

Linear programming (LP, also called linear optimization) is a method to achieve the best outcome (such as maximum profit or lowest cost) in a mathematical model whose requirements are represented by linear relationships. Linear programming is a special case of mathematical programming (also known as mathematical optimization).
