(A) Simpson's rule as well as rectangular rule of estimation will give NON-zero error.

(B) Simpson's rule, rectangular rule as well as trapezoidal rule of estimation will give NON-zero error.

(C) Only the rectangular rule of estimation will give zero error.

(D) Only Simpson's rule of estimation will give zero error.
