Solution

A)

All IIMs are in India. For IIMs to be BIMs, at least some BIMs must be in India. But they are not according to the second part of the sentence. Hence, No IIMs are BIMS => Third part can be inferred => A is true

B)

All IIMs are in India. For BIMs to be IIMs, at least some BIMs must be in India. But they are not according to the second part of the sentence. Hence, No BIMs are IIMs.

C and D cannot be inferred as there is a possibility that no IIMs are BIMs.
