in c cents : 1 pound of salami = 16 ounces of salami

=> 1 ounce of salami : $$\frac{c}{16}$$ cents

=> a ounce of salami: $$\frac{{a * c }}{100}$$ cents

IMO D

IMO D Lets assume a= 32 ounces, c=2
so convert ounces into pound
32/16=2 and per pound is 2 cent then 2 pound is 2*2=4 plot these values into question and only D will give answer 4
If you like my explanation then please give me Kudos Thanks in advance
