Solution

The correct option is D Not defined
Division is a repeated subtraction.
For example: In 6÷2 , we subtract 2 from 6 repeatedly till we get zero.
Now, consider 5÷0
It means that we have to subtract 0 from 5 again and again till we reach 0, this is a never ending process.
So, division of a whole number by 0 is not defined.
