 
Hi, This problem is being presented as a multiple choice problem. Your son is being given 4 choices for an answer. They are.
The correct answer is the fourth choice as your son determined. What I found confusing was that the two parts of the question were labeled a) and b) and the first two choices were also labeled a) and b). I hope this helps,
