For the Buddhist-epistemological school of Dignaga and Dharmakirti (otherwise known as the Pramanavada) (A), (B), and (C) can be conceived as each a representation or form (akara) of value, all three mediated by cognitive relations that imply a hierarchization of their objects or supporting conditions (alambana).
One of Dignaga's conceptions (in the Pramanasamuccaya and -vrtti) of the akara as "object-form" or cognitive representation of the "supporting condition" (in this case the physical datum of the body) is as the perceptual awareness of the object it "resembles." For this account of perception, the cognition of the akara as a differentiated form (i.e., having qualities particular to it) is what allows for the cognition of objects per se (objects which would otherwise lack specificity if their akara were not so differentiated).
In other words, for Dignaga (as for Dharmakirti) the akara functions as an intentional object that mediates the objective existence of a physical, or indeed any cognitive, datum.
Inasmuch as that perception requires a particular cognizer, the form of value so perceived is cognitively superimposed (adhyaropita) on the cognized form (akara) of the object of the person.
