On that scale, the intensity corresponding to a reading of 8 is how many times as great as the intensity corresponding to a reading of 3 ?

Intensity of 8 = 10 *intensity of 7 = 10 * 10 *intensity of 6 = 10*10*10 *intensity of 5 = 10*10*10*10 *intensity of 4 = 10*10*10*10*10 *intensity of 3 = 10^5 *intensity of 3

So, Answer will be C

Hope it helps!
