I and II
II and III
The second statement is true. Hence the answer is II.
Thus the statement that is true is: II - In a strong form efficient market, corporate insiders are not be able to make superior profits to the market through private information.
Explanation: This is because in case of a strong form of efficient market prices fully reflect all information. All known information is impounded in the current price of a stock/share. Hence it will not matter if the information is publicly and generally available or not. Insider information is included and hence there is no situation of advantage for corporate insiders.
