When Separate Set of Books is maintained for the Joint Venture, then normal three accounts are made, namely Joint Bank A/c, Joint Venture A/c and all Co-venturer's A/cs.  When any payment is made through Joint Bank A/c for any expenses, then journal entry passed is:

Joint Venture A/c   Dr.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         To Joint Bank A/c

Hence option option (c) is most appropriate.
