    Thanks Fivejedjon,

    My question was what were the meanings of 1, 2 and 3.
    I wanted to see which corresponds to "a", which to "b" and which to "c".

    Then ask the question in the first place, rather than leave us to guess what you want.

    1 does not sound natural to me, but could mean b or c, I suppose
    2 could mean all three
    3 could mean b or c
