Dear Matt, "Insolation is the incoming solar radiation that reaches a planet and its atmosphere or, by extension, any object exposed to solar rays, such as a spacecraft or building." (SOURCE: Wikipedia, Insolation, <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Insolation>). That is, (d). I hope this answers your question. Please contact me if you need any further clarification on this answer before you rate it. My search strategy: looked up "define:insolation" on Google.
