Correct Answer - Option 3 : C

Given:

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.

Calculations:

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.
