Hint:

We are given the quantity of beans in hectograms. It is 10 hectograms. We are asked to find the quantity in kilograms. Question is about conversion of units. We have to convert the given quantity into another unit. To convert one unit to another, we should know the relation between them.

The correct answer is: 1




    The given quantity of beans is 10 hectograms.
    We have to find the value in kilograms.
    If we see the table, the relation between kilograms and hectograms is 10. Every column to the right of the column is 10 times the previous column. So if we see it opposite way, 1 hectogram is 0.1 kilogram.
    To convert the given quantity into kilograms, we must know the relation between them.
    1 hectogram = 0.1 kilograms.
    So, to convert 10 hectograms into kilograms, we will multiply it by 0.1.
    10 hectograms = 0.1 × 10 kilograms
    = 1 kilogram
    Therefore, the quantity of beans in kilograms is 1.

    For such questions, we should know the conversion of units.
