No, option C is correct.

It's a max precipitation for a given period not for all storms.

Probable Maximum Precipitation (PMP) is termed as "theoretically the greatest depth of precipitation for a given duration that is physically possible over a given size storm area at a particular geographic location at a given time of the year.

Answer should be B because pmp shows the maximum ppt that occurs in a strom at any location.
