Solution

## The correct option is A 1.288Weight of potatoes = 7 kg 670 gm = 7 kg + 670 gm = 7 kg+ 6701000kg (∵1kg=1000gm) = 7 kg + 0.67 kg = 7.67 kg Similarly, weight of onions = 3 kg + 421000kg = 3 kg + 0.042 kg = 3.042 kg Since the total weight of vegetables is 12 kg, we have: Weight of tomatoes = 12 kg - Weight of potatoes - Weight of onions = 12 kg - 7.67 kg - 3.042 kg = 1.288 kg
