B
3310kg

C
3910kg
loader
D
5910kg

Solution

The correct option is A $$5\dfrac{3}{10} kg$$
Total weight of the apple $$15\dfrac{9}{10}kg=\dfrac{(15\times10)+9}{10}=\dfrac{159}{10}$$

There are three, they divide the apple equally between them

so one person will get the weight of apple $$=\dfrac{159}{3\times10}=\dfrac{159}{30}=5\dfrac{3}{10}kg$$
