Solution

## The correct option is C 8Total number of carton boxes = Number of rows of carton×Number of cartons in each row For minimum number of rows, the number of cartoons in each row should be maximum. From the given options, the largest number is 14. However, 192 is not divisible by 14. The second largest number is 8. 192 is divisible by 8 evenly. 1928=24 ∴8 is the required number of cartons in each row.
