Solution

## The correct option is D 6 Total number of players =18 As per the given statement, the number of main players =23×18=12 So, the number of reserved players = Total number of players − Number of main players =18−12=6 Alternatively, Fraction of main players =23 So, the fraction of reserved players =1−23=13 Hence, number of reserved players =13×18=6
