Solution

The correct option is A

1


Total number of apples = 14
No. of apples that were spoilt = 14×27 = 4 apples.
Now, no. of apples left = 10 apples
No. of apples left, after selling some in the market = 10×15 = 2 apples.
Half of the 2 apples is eaten by his wife.
So, the number of apples left = 2×12 = 1 apple
Therefore, he is left with one apple.
