Solution

## The correct option is A 96, 27Sixty nine is nothing but 69 in words. Similarly, ninety six is 96. In the number 69, we have 6 in tens place and 9 in ones place. Additionally, in 96, we have 9 in tens place and 6 in ones place. When we compare two numbers with the same number of digits, we start from the left. So comparing 69 and 96 we start from the tens place. In 69, 6 is in the tens place. In 96, 9 is in the tens place. Clearly, 9 is greater than 6 i.e. 9 > 6. Thus, it can be concluded that 69 < 96. The difference between them is 96 - 69 = 27
