ii.  are owned at the particular time by such a beneficiary in a proportion that the fair market value of the beneficial interest in the trust of the beneficiary is of the fair market value of the beneficial interests in the trust of all the beneficiaries, if subparagraph i does not apply and the particular time occurs before the distribution date;
(b)  if a beneficiary’s share of the accumulating income or capital of the trust depends on the exercise by any person of, or the failure by any person to exercise, a power to appoint, are owned at the particular time by the beneficiary, unless subparagraph a applies and the particular time occurs before the distribution date,
(c)  in any case in which subparagraph b does not apply, are owned at the particular time by the beneficiary in a proportion that the fair market value of the beneficial interest in the trust of the beneficiary is of the fair market value of all beneficial interests in the trust, unless subparagraph a applies and the particular time occurs before the distribution date, and
