Solution

## The correct option is D ftThe foot–pound–second system or FPS system is a system of units developed by the British, and was built on three fundamental units: the foot (ft) to express length and distance the pound (lb) to express mass (and also weight) the second (s) to express time Since Rahul measured his height which is simply the vertical length of his body, he would have to express it in the unit of foot (ft), as he wanted to use the FPS system.
