Solution

The correct option is **C** 60≤h≤80

Given, h represents the height of candidates.

**Step 1**: The minimum height for qualify for the physical test is 60 inches.

This statement can be represented as :

h ≥ 60 which can also be written as 60≤h

**Step 2**: Also, The maximum height above which a candidate can be disqualified is 80 inches, which means that h is less than or equal to 80 inches

h≤80

Step 3: Combining both the inequalities:

⇒60≤h≤80

Hence, it will be represented as: ⇒60≤h≤80

Given, h represents the height of candidates.

This statement can be represented as :

h ≥ 60 which can also be written as 60≤h

h≤80

Step 3: Combining both the inequalities:

⇒60≤h≤80

Hence, it will be represented as: ⇒60≤h≤80
