A) 0
B) 1
C) 2

E) 7

Since $$2.8^2$$ =7.84,i.e. approx 8 and $$\sqrt{349}$$ is approx 19, so 8/19 is 0.4 approx .
And since 6 box are already there =6*0.4=2.4 meter
and one more box can be entered to total approx=2.8 ,if we add one more it goes above 3 m.
Ans:B

Given expression roughly turns to 1/2. Something
So total box in 3 meter will be
Total height divided by height of individual boxes that is 9 boxes

6 are already present. It can accommodate approximately 1 more.

Given expression roughly turns to 1/3
So total box in 3 meter will be
Total height divided by height of individual boxes. This comes out to be 9 boxes

6 are already present. It can accommodate approximately 3 more. Note, 2 is the nearest number

Hey ankit,

Anyway, I have edited the post
