SD does not change whenever a constant is added or subtracted to the elements of the set. Here, in E, ab is added to all the elements (a,b,c) which gives:

(a+ab, b+ab, c+ab) = (a(1+b), b(1+a), c+ab).
The order is changed in the options which makes it a bit confusing if you have a lack of time.

Hope this helps.
