Abhijit,

I assume you intended to ask " what if the question asked for thousandth, hundredth,tenth,....PLACE AFTER DECIMAL?"
If so then
number=7382.196
Rounding T's place after decimal a=7382.196
Rounding H's place after decimal b=7382.20
Rounding Te's place after decimal c=7382.2
There is no such thing as One's place after decimal.

Q) Let a,b,c and d be the result of rounding off 7382.196 to the nearest thousand, hundred, ten and one, respectively. Which of the following statements is true?

Answer:

A) d<c<b<a
B) d<c<a<b
C) a<d<c<b
D) c<d<b<a
E) a<c<d<b


7382.196 rounded to the nearest thousand is 7000 = a.

7382.196 rounded to the nearest hundred is 7400 = b.

7382.196 rounded to the nearest ten is 7380 = c.

7382.196 rounded to the nearest one is 7382 = d.

Thus, a < c < d < b.

Answer: E
