The reaction rate for destruction of Clostridium botulimum increases 11 times for temperature rise of $10^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$ from $121.1^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$. The decimal reduction time of this organism is $5.7 \mathrm{~s}$ at $121.1{ }^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$. The minimum sterilization time in seconds at $135^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$, for eight log cycle reduction of the organism, is

(A) 0.20

(B) 0.31
