Consider the following statements

$${\rm I}.\,\,\,\,$$ Effective length of a battened column is usually increased to account for the additional load on battens due to the lateral expansion of columns.
$${\rm II}.\,\,\,\,$$ As per $$IS:$$ $$800$$-$$1984,$$ permissible stress in bending compression depends on both Euler buckling stress and the yield stress of steel.
$${\rm III}.\,\,\,\,$$ As per $$IS:$$ $$800$$-$$1984,$$ the effective length of a column effectively held in position at both ends but not restrained against rotation, is taken to be greater than that in the ideal end conditions.

The TRUE statements are

A
only $${\rm I}$$ and $${\rm I}$$$${\rm I}$$

only $${\rm I}$$$${\rm I}$$ and $${\rm I}$$$${\rm I}$$$${\rm I}$$
