Justification for the correct answer:

Option (B) is given as 83%. The percentage of total volume exhaled depends on the specific time period. If the specific time period is 1 second, then the forced expiratory volume (FEV1) is 83%. This volume is the same for both males and females. Hence, option (B) is correct.

Justification for the incorrect answers:
