Solution

The correct option is B 47 Initially, the number of chairs is 576 Since the number of rows is equal to the number of columns, which say is 'a' We have a2=576 a = 2√576 a = 2√23×3×23×3 a = 2√26×32 a = 23×3 a = 24 Now one row and one column is removed. Hence, the new number of row and column is equal to 24 -1 = 23 The new number of chairs will be equal to 232 = 529 Therefore the number of chairs removed is equal to 576−529 = 47
