Solution

## The correct option is C Addition and MultiplicationAddition and multiplication of whole numbers satisfy closure property. Eg. 20+3=23 Here both the addends and the sum are whole numbers. 2×3=6 . Here the multiplier, the multiplicand and the product all are whole numbers. Whole numbers are not closed under subtraction and division. Eg. 3−4=−1 (while 3 and 4 are whole numbers, -1 is not a whole number). 3÷2=1.5 (while 3 and 2 are whole numbers, 1.5 is not a whole number).
