  1. 2
  2. 3
  3. 100
  4. 10

Hint:

The above expression is addition of two constants. A constant is a quantity that has fixed value. The two constants are 5 and 3. And the operation between them is addition. We have to find number of terms in this expression.

The correct answer is: 2


    The given expression is 5+3.
    We have to find number of terms in this expression. Terms means a quantity which can be considered as a single unit. It can be a number, a variable or combination of constants and variables. The operations of addition and subtraction separate the terms. Here, we have one '+' sign between the two numbers. It means that we have two terms. The terms are '5' and '3'.
    Therefore option (a) which is '2' is the right option.

    An expression doesn't need to have variables to count as separate terms. Two numbers when added or subtracted are counted as two terms.
