Your Answer
C
150 ml
Your Answer
D
170 ml

Solution

The correct option is C 160 ml
All the units of measurement are same. After converting the numbers to like decimals, we can add all three quantities. 

      23.260
 +60.500
 +71.486
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯               
     155.246 ml
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯               

155.246 will overflow in a 155 ml can. Hence, 160 ml is the minimum capacity of the can to hold the kerosene
