Answer

Correct Option is Only (b) and (c)

Solution:Going through the third paragraph of the passage, we can clearly see China’s discomfort and howl over AUCKUS is so much so that even after Australia’s reassurance, its foreign minister slammed at it. To get the clear view, we can refer: “ Even though Australia has denied that AUKUS is a defence alliance, this hardly prevents China from exploiting ASEAN’s concerns at having to face a Hobson’s choice amidst worsening U.S.-China regional rivalry. True to style, the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman has criticised AUKUS as an “exclusive bloc” and “clique” that gravely undermines regional peace and security and reflects a Cold War mentality.”
