Answer: [Option b] Only two statements

Explanation: The first two statements are correct. The survey indeed took place in June 1958, and V. K. Raina led the expedition. However, the third statement is incorrect as the Siachen glacier was one of the five glaciers surveyed during the expedition. The fourth statement is also incorrect as there were no protests or concerns expressed by Pakistan during the survey.
