The probabilities that a student passes in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry are $$m, p$$ and $$c$$ respectively. Of these subjects, the student has $$75$$% chance of passing in at least one, a $$50$$% chance of passing in at least two and a $$40$$% chance of passing in exactly two. Following relations are drawn in $$m, p, c:$$
$${\rm I}.$$ $$\,\,\,\,\,\,$$ $$p+m+c=27/20$$
$${\rm I}{\rm I}.$$ $$\,\,\,\,\,\,$$ $$p+m+c=13/20$$
$${\rm I}{\rm I}{\rm I}.$$ $$\,\,\,\,\,\,$$ $$\left( p \right) \times \left( m \right) \times \left( c \right) = 1/10$$
A
Only relation $${\rm I}$$ is true
B
Only relation $${\rm I}$$$${\rm I}$$ is true
C
Relations $${\rm I}$$$${\rm I}$$ and $${\rm I}$$$${\rm I}$$$${\rm I}$$ are true
D
Relations $${\rm I}$$ and $${\rm I}$$$${\rm I}$$$${\rm I}$$ are true
