(b) Only two
(c) All three

Explanation:

  1. The Jhelum River does pass through Wular Lake in Jammu and Kashmir, India. This is the largest freshwater lake in India. The river enters the lake from the south and leaves it from the north. So, this statement is correct.
  2. Kolleru Lake is one of the largest freshwater lakes in India, located in Andhra Pradesh. It is fed by the waters of the Budameru and Tammileru rivers. However, it is not directly fed by the Krishna River. So, this statement is incorrect.
  3. Kanwar Lake is one of Asia’s largest freshwater oxbow lakes, formed by the meandering of the Gandak River in Bihar, India. So, this statement is correct.

So, two of the statements are correct. The answer is: (b) Only two
