Solution

## The correct option is B 41/12 kgLet the tea left at the hotel be y kg. Weight of extra clothes = 43 kg Weight of food = 14 kg So, in order to leave atleast 5 kg of his luggage, the weight of the tea package needs to be added such that the total weight of the tea package, food, and clothes must be greater than 5. i.e., y + 43 + 14 > 5 ⇒ y + 16 + 312 > 5 ⇒ y +1912 > 5 ⇒ y + 1912 - 1912 > 5 - 1912 ⇒ y > 5 - 1912 ⇒ y > 4112 kg
