Question

A thermometer shows a temperature of 10 degrees Celsius. What would be the new temperature if it drops by 17 degrees?

  1.    
  2. -7°    
  3. 10°    
  4. 27°    

Hint:

In the question it is given that a thermometer shows a temperature of 10 degrees Celsius. We are required to find the new temperature if it drops by 17 degrees. Here we have to subtract 17 degrees from the initial temperature, i.e., 10 degrees.

The correct answer is: -7°


    Step by step solution:
    The initial temperature= 10 degrees
    The new temperature shown by the thermometer = (10 - 17) degrees = -7 degrees
    Hence, option(d) is the correct option.
