Solution

## The correct option is A 150 paper bags, and 50 plastic bagsThe municipality van collects 20 bags of waste every day. => In 1 day, paper bags collection = 34 th of total bags => 34×20=15 bags Paper bags in one day = 15 bags And number of plastic bags in one day = 5 bags Hence, for 10 days, Municipality van will collect = 20 × 10 = 200 bags of waste => Total number of paper bags = 15 × 10 = 150 => Total number of plastic bags = 5 × 10 = 50
