Each question in group A carries 1 mark, each question in group B carries 2 marks and each question in group C carries 3 marks. It is known that the questions in group A together carry at least 60% of the total marks.


If group C contains 8 questions and group B carries at least 20% of the total marks, which of the following best describes the number of questions in group B?



A 11 or 12
B 12 or 13

C 13 or 14
D 14 or 15
