Solution

## The correct option is C 32,500 kgWe use net production value and not gross production value to calculate the availability of foodgrains. Net total production = Total amount of foodgrains produced – Other usage (Seed + Cattle feed + Wastage) = 35,000 kg – (1,500 + 500 + 500) kg = 35,000 kg – 2,500 kg = 32,500 kg
