(A) 1

(B) 5

(C) 6

(D) 7

(E) 9

For a decimal number in the form ab.c, a=tens digit and c=tenth digit.

Question stem=tens digit+tenth digit=a+c

Given$$\frac{617}{49}$$=12.5 (we have calculated up to 1 point after decimal since our focus is on the tenth digit)

So a+c=1+5=6

Therefore, answer option (C) is correct.

Solution:

Since 617/49 = 12.5918…, the sum of the tens digit and the tenths digit of the resulting number is 1 + 5 = 6.
