Solution

The correct option is C 74
Final weight of the tea leaves can be found by subtracting the weight of
1/2 kg from the weight of leaves before they are dried.

Hence,
Initial weight of the leaves before drying = 214 = 94 kg

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 kg
The equivalent of 12 = 24 kg

Subtracting it from the initial weight,
Final weight = 94 - 12
= 94 - 24
= 74 kg

Since the weight is being subtracted, the final weight lies 2 units left of 94 on the number line i.e., at 74 kg.
