(c) 10 thousands
(d) 1 crore

Best Answer

Ans. In this question, we need to find the value of 1 million and find the number from the given options this value of 1 million is original to.
In this question, we've to keep in mind that the place value system that uses millions and billions, etc is the transnational place value system. We don't use this place value system. Rather, we use the place value system which involves the use of lacks and crores, etc which is the Indian place value system.So, we need to find the conversion rates from transnational place value system to Indian place value system.
Let us first see the difference between the Indian place value system and the transnational place value system.
A place value map helps us to fete large figures. We read the place value map from left to right. In Indian place value system we need to start grouping the number from right in group of 3 and further in group of 2. While, in the transnational place value system we group the number from right in groups of 3 only.
Now, we know that 1 million = in the transnational place value system.
1 million = in the Indian place value system.
This is original to Thousands = 10 Lakhs = 1 Million
Hence, 1 million is original to 1000 thousands.
So, option (b) is correct.
