Or equivalently, A pivot position in a matrix A is a location in any row of A that corresponds to a leading entry in a row (left most non-zero entry) in any echelon form of A.  A pivot column is a column of A that contains a pivot position.

 Suppose a system of linear equations (L) has 3 \times 5 augmented matrix whose fifth column is one of the pivot columns. 

Which of the following is True?

(A). System L is consistent and has unique solution 

(B). System L is consistent and has infinitely many solutions

(C). System L is inconsistent
