Solution

## The correct option is C −40∘CFahrenheit and Celsius are measurements of temperature and are related to each other as follows: C=(F−32)×59 Where C is the temperature in Celsius and F is the temperature in Fahrenheit. Since we need temperature and celsius to be equal: Now, let C=F=x So, x=(x−32)×59 ⇒9x=5x−160 ⇒4x=−160 ⇒x=−40 Therefore −40∘C=−40∘F Thus at −40∘C temperature, Celsius and Fahrenheit are equal.
