How option C is correct?

When wind is blowing in the direction of flight air speed is ore than crushing speed.

Here, above two options are right but option c is wrong.

Because. Air speed = crushing speed + wind speed along flight direction.

Airspeed is the vector difference between the ground speed and the wind speed. On a perfectly still day, the airspeed is equal to the ground speed. But if the wind is blowing in the same direction that the aircraft is moving, the airspeed will be less than the ground speed.
