Solution

## The correct option is A 9000As we know, Largest four-digit number = 9999 Largest three-digit number = 999 Given , ⇒ Largest number of pizza ordered = Largest four-digit number = 9999 ⇒Smallest number of pizza ordered = Largest three-digit number = 999 Let the difference be x. The difference between largest and smallest order + Smallest number of pizza ordered = Largest number of pizza ordered ⇒x+999=9999 Subtract 999 from both side, ⇒x+999−999=9999−999⇒x=9000 The difference between largest and smallest order is 9000.
