According to me, option A fails for friction pile and C fails for end bearing piles.

From my point of view, option (a) & (c) both are correct, as piles transfer load either through point bearing and friction. Needless for mention that friction develop by surrounded soil. Again option (d) is also correct, as piles foundation is under deep foundation.
