Solution

The correct option is **B** ₹0.75

Let's convert ₹34 to a decimal.

34 represents 3÷4.

__Step 1:__ In the given fraction 34, take the numerator digit 3 as a dividend and the denominator digit 4 as the divisor.

**Step 2:** Here, denominator > numerator.

We have to make the dividend digit (3) greater than the divisor digit (4) by placing 0 next to the 3 and to the quotient respectively.

Now we have 30 as a new dividend. (30>4).

**Step 3:** In the quotient part, it is important to insert decimal (.) after 0 and start the division.

**Step 4:** Multiply 4 with a number so that the product is less than or equal to 30.

4×7–=28. Now, the quotient is__7__ and the remainder left is 2.

After introducing a decimal point in the quotient we can introduce one 0 at each step of division.

**Step 5:** Now, the new dividend is 20. Multiply 4 with a number so that the product is less than equal to 20.

4×5=20. Here now the quotient is 5 and the leftover remainder is 0.

∴34 can be written as 0.75.

So, Charu paid ₹0.75 for the eraser.
