Solution

## The correct option is C 1383 BC Year in which Queen Nefertiti ruled = Year in which Turks ruled - 2900 yr = (1517 AD) - 2900 For any two positive numbers, subtracting the larger from the smaller means, taking the negative of the smaller subtracted from the larger. (x-y) = -(y-x) = (+ 1517) - 2900 = - (2900 - 1517) [ as (x-y) = -(y-x)] = -1383 = 1383 BC Hence, Queen Nefertiti ruled in the year 1383 BC.
