Now take the square of 3.1i.e, 3.1X3.1= 9.64 Now the next number has to be closer to 10 You can check by taking the square of 3.3 and then zero down on 3.2! _________________

Square root of 10 can be written as square root of 5 times square root of 2. Square root of 5=2.23 and square root of 2 is 1.41 - multiply these together and the answer you get is closest to 3.2.

The correct answer is 3.2 (E), not D.

Let us simply take squares of all options. 3.1 * 3.1 = 9.61 3.2 * 3.2 = 10.24 Since it has already crossed 10 (i.e. the square of √10), we need not go further and need to decide between 3.1 and 3.2 10 - 9.61 = 0.39 10.24 - 10 = 0.24 Since 0.24 is lesser of the both, so 3.2 is closer. Hence (E).
