The correct option is B completes 615 paintings with 1 litre of paint remaining.
Paint used for each painting = 15 litres.

Total amount of paint used = 9226 litres.

Calculating 9226÷15 by box method,


So, you get 615 as the final quotient and 1 as the remainder.

∴ With 9226 litres of paint, the artist completes 615 paintings with 1 litre of paint remaining.
