Consider the following conditions:

1. The solution must be feasible, i.e. it must satisfy all the supply and demand constraints
2. The number of positive allocations must be equal to $m+n-1$, where $m$ is the number of rows and $n$ is the number of columns
3. All the positive allocations must be in independent positions

The initial solution of a transportation problem is said to be non-degenerate basic feasible solution if it satisfies:

1. $a$ and $b$ only
2. $a$ and $c$ only
3. $b$ and $c$ only
4. $a$, $b$ and $c$

all conditions must be true (all these are basic constraints)

hence ans is D
