Mr. Gifford wishes to put 372 eggs into cartons that can hold 12 eggs each. If he has 50 empty cartons and completely fills as many of them as possible with the 327 eggs, how many of the cartons will remain empty?

(A) 12

(B) 15

(C) 19

(D) 28

(E) 31

Cartons that will remain empty=Total no of empty cartons-Total no of filled cartons

=50-\(\frac{372}{12}\)=50-31=19

Ans. (C)

P.S:-I have assumed that Mr. Gifford completely fills as many of them as possible with the

372 eggs instead of 327.
