Given:
    • Government spends $9.8 billion on a population of 1.4 million

To find:
    • The government’s per capita expenditure

Approach and Working Out:
    The government’s per capita expenditure = \(\frac{$9.8 billion}{$1.4 million}\) = $7 * 1000 = $7,000

Hence, the correct answer is Option C.

Answer: C

1 Billion = 1000 Million

Now, Per Capita Expenditure is \(\frac{9.8*1000}{1.4} = 7000\) , Answer must be (C)
