Solution

## The correct option is A Shortage in the amount of electricity is by 62.277 MWTotal amount of electricity needed = 1450 MW The amount of electricity produced by thermal power plant = 595.023 MW The amount of electricity produced by wind power plant = 431.245 MW The amount of electricity produced by solar power plant = 361.455 MW Total amount of electricity produced = 595.023 431.245 +361.455 ------------ 1387.723 ------------ Total amount of electricity produced = 1387.723 MW Total amount of electricity needed = 1450 MW Difference = 1450 - 1387.723 = 62.277 MW Since the amount of electricity needed is more than that of produced, there is shortage of electricity and the quantity needed is 62.777 MW
