A)10000 kg
B) 1000 kg
C) 100 kg
D) 0.001 kg

Best Answer

Ans: We know that 1 ton = 2000 pounds = 907.18 Kg.

 But 1 metric ton = 2204 pounds = 1000 Kg.

 The metric ton is officially known as tonne ( i.e. S.I norms called it as tonne), but the U.S government recommends to call it as metric ton.

 The metric ton deduced from the term hogshead, denoting a large quantum of barrel used in the wine trade and named from the French tonnerre, or thunder.

 So the weight in the metric tons is equal to the rate of the weight in the kilograms to 1000.

 For illustration If we've to convert 400 kilogram into metric tons.

 So 400 kilogram in metric ton = (400/1000) = 0.4 metric ton.

 1 metric ton = 1000 Kg, and we all know 1 Kg = 1000 gram.

 So 1 metric ton = 1000 (1000) gram = 106gram = 1 megagram.

 So 1 metric ton = 1000 Kg = 106gram = 1 megagram.

 So this is the needed answer.

 Hence option (B) is the needed answer.
