Correct Answer - Option 3 : C


Number of books = 2 dozen = 24 books

Number of notebooks = 16

Concept used:

Maximum number of sets that can be made will be HCF of number of books and number of notebook to be distributed.


HCF of 24 and 16 can be find as,

24 = 23 × 3

16 = 24

HCF = 23 = 8

∴ Maximum number of sets that can be made is 8.
