Solution

## The correct option is C 74Final weight of the tea leaves can be found by subtracting the weight of 1/2 lb from the weight of leaves before being dried. Initial weight of the leaves before drying = 214 =94 lb On the number line, this lies between 2 and 3, and 1 part out of 4 parts i.e., ∴ the weight reduced by drying = 12 lb The equivalent of 12 is 24 lb Subtracting it from the initial weight, we get: Final weight =94 −12 =94 −24 =9−24 =74 Since the weight is being subtracted, the final weight lies 2 units left of 94 on the number line, i.e., at 74 lb.
