p(not E) * P(Not F) = 3/10 * 7/10 = 21/100 = 0.21 --> 0.2 < 0.21 < 0.4 --> Ans C

==> It is about the probability that event E and F don’t occur.
Then, (1-0.7)(1-0.3)=(0.3)(0.7)=0.21 is derived, which includes C.

This question probably needs a verbal expert to phrase it in a better way or maybe word confusion was part of the cloak to make this question more confusing.
