Solution

## The correct option is C 74Final 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.
