Thermodynamics Test Questions

Q.  Why do the airplanes fly at higher altitude during the long flights?

a. to avoid collisions as they are at very high speed and controlling will be difficult if something (like towers, hills) comes in the way
b. it is easy to communicate with satellites at high altitudes
c. to save the fuel as air at higher altitude exerts smaller drag force on aircraft
d. none of the above
