This is an example of what is known as a "loaded question" in logic. When the question asks if the company will "continue" to do something, the question is assuming the company did that thing in the past. If the company disagrees that it ever did that thing, neither a "yes" nor a "no" answer will seem appropriate to the company, so I is correct. And the question does contain a presupposition the company might object to, so III is correct. II is not correct, because there is nothing logically inconsistent about the question itself (it doesn't contradict itself in any way).
