C. 5*10^19
D. 5*10^20
E. 5*10^21


\(Time(in years)=\frac{Distance}{Speed}=\frac{3*10^{30}}{6*10^{10}}\)=\(5*10^{19}\)

Ans. (C)

C. 5*10^19
D. 5*10^20
E. 5*10^21


Average speed = \(6*10^{10}\)

Distance need to travel = \(3*10^{30}\)

Time =\(\frac{Distance}{Speed}\)

\(\frac{3*10^{30}}{6*10^{10}}\)

=\(\frac{1}{2}\) * \(10^{20}\)

= 0.5 * \(10^{20}\)

= \(5 * 10^{19}\)

The best answer is C.

\(= \frac{3*10^{30}}{6*10^{10}}\)

\(= \frac{3*10^{20}}{6}\)

\(= \frac{30*10^{19}}{6}\)

\(= 5*10^{19}\) , Answer must be (C)
