1. q3 is unreachable state, hence it can be removed.

2. States q1 and q2 are indistiguishable, so, they can be merged.

It is B.

The state Q3 is redundant as it is not reachable. And the Regular expression b*a(a+b)* can be made with two states.

Q1-->b-->Q1

Q1-->a-->Q2

Q2-->a-->Q2

Q2-->b-->Q2.

Clearly there are 2 states.
