Following are the statements related to the stress paths in a triaxial testing of soils: P. If $\sigma_{1}=\sigma_{3},$ the stress point lies at the origin of the $p-q$ plot. Q. If $\sigma_{1}=\sigma_{3},$ the stress point lies on the $p$ -axis of the $p-q$ plot. R. If $\sigma_{1}>\sigma_{3},$ both the stress points $p$ and $q$ are positive. For the above statements, the correct combination is

(A) $P-$ False: $Q-$ True: $\quad R-$ True

(B) $P-$ True: $\quad Q-$ False: $R-$ True

(C) $\mathrm{P}-$ False: $Q-$ True: $\quad \mathrm{R}-$ False

(D) $P-$ True: $\quad Q-$ False: $R-$ False
