Solution

## The correct option is B a rational numberGiven is $2.35$,$2.35$is a rational number because it is a terminating decimal. Note: Terminating decimal numbers has a finite number of digits after the decimal point. A number with a terminating decimal is always a rational number. If the denominator of a rational number can be expressed in form ${2}^{p}{5}^{q}$or ${2}^{p}$ or ${5}^{q}$, where $p,q\in N$, then the decimal expansion of the rational number terminates.Hence, the correct option is (b).
