Solution

## The correct option is B: 58 metreTotal length of wire =78 meter Length of first part =14 meter Length of first part + Length of remaining part = Total length of the wire ⇒ Length of remaining part = Total length of the wire − Length of first part Length of remaining part =78−14=(7)−(1×2)8 [ ∵ L.C.M of 8 and 4 is 8 ] =7−28=58 Therefore, the length of remaining part is 58 metre.
