If 60 feet of uniform wire weights 80 pounds, 2 yards or 6 feet of this wire will be $$\frac{1}{10}$$th of that weight.

Therefore, the weight of 2 yards of this wire is $$\frac{1}{10}*80 = 8$$ pounds(Option C)

imo c 60 feet converted into yard whose formula is given and then find weight of each yard and then *2
60/3=20 yard
80*2/20=8 pounds
