Please help me with the following:

Which of the following statements most accurately describes the difference between 3x^0 and (3x)^0, if a difference exists?

A. There is no mathematical difference between 3x^0 and (3x)^0. The two are equivalent expressions.

B. In the expression 3x^0, the exponent 0 is applied only to the variable x, while in (3x)^0, the exponent 0 is applied only to the coefficient 3.

C. In the expression (3x)^0, the exponent is applied only to the variable x, while in 3x^0, the exponent 0 is applied to both the variable x and the coefficient 3.

D. In the expression 3x^0, the exponent 0 is applied only to the variable x, while in (3x)^0, the exponent 0 is applied to both the variable x and the coefficient 3.
