Solution

The correct option is B Step 3Given inequation is y + 3 ≥ 11 To find which is step is the error, we have to check the given value is true or not. Substituting the given value y = 9 in the LHS of the inequation, we get: y+3=9+3=12 So, LHS = 12 RHS = 11 ∴ LHS ≥ RHS But in the Step 3, it is given in the opposite way. Hence, Step 3 is incorrect.
