Hint: The word thermal is related to the heat and the word decomposition means breakdown i.e. in thermal decomposition reactions, a compound breaks into two or more parts. Now with the help of this you can easily answer the given statement.

$A\xrightarrow{\Delta }B+C$
$ZnC{{O}_{3}}\xrightarrow{heat}ZnO+C{{O}_{2}}$
${{C}_{6}}{{H}_{14}}\xrightarrow{heat}{{C}_{4}}{{H}_{10}}+{{C}_{2}}{{H}_{4}}$
