If there are 12 peanuts to give to each of 20 children
=> Total peanuts =240

Children who dont want any peanuts =5

Now children who will get peanuts = 15

15 children now can get 240/15 = 16 peanut each.

IMO
Correct Answer C.

Total Peanuts in the bag = 12 x 20 = 240

If 5 children do not want any peanuts, = 12 x 5 = 60 Peanuts left

how many peanuts can be given to each of the others?
Remaining are 15 Children, so 60/15 = 4 Peanuts per child in addition to 12.
Total of 12+4 = 16


Correct Answer is C

total peanuts 12*20 = 240
children who would want peanuts = 15
so they would get 240/15 = 16 IMO C
