  1. $15-5+2\times6\div3=15-5+12\div4\implies15-5+3\implies13\neq 28$
  2. $15+5\div2\times6-3=15+2\times6-3\implies15+12-3\implies24\neq56.5$
  3. $15\div5\times2-6+3=3\times2-6+3\implies6-6+3\implies3=3$
  4. $15\times5\div2+6-2=75\div2+6-3\implies37+6-3\implies43-3\implies40\neq 41$

Option (C) is correct.
