Sankara's special reference to 'Samana Nyaya' admits only inclusive
relations between Trvrtkarana and Pancikarana. Hence I avoided options you

Pancikarana. A meticulous Advaitin trained in Nyaya will treat "Each is a
special case of the other.; Neither is a a special case of the other"
inadmissible to the premise.

With Narayana Smrti,
