  1. 12    
  2. 2    
  3. 2.2    
  4. 2.1    

Hint:

We are given the capacity of the jug. It is 200 centiliters. We are asked to find the capacity of jug in liters. For this question, we have to find the relation between centiliters and liters. Once we get the relation we can use the formula to find the required value.

The correct answer is: 2


    The given capacity of jug is 200 centiliters.
    We are asked to find the capacity of the jug in liters.
    To convert the capacity, we must know the relation between them.
    1 liter = 100 centiliters
    So to find 1 centiliters into liters, we will divide both sides by 100.
    100 ÷ 100 centiliters = 1 ÷ 100 liter
    1 centiliters = 0.01 liter
    To convert 200 centiliters into liters, we will multiply the given quantity by 0.01.
    200 centiliters = 200 × 0.01 liters
    = 2 liters
    Therefore, the capacity of jug in liters is 2 liters.

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