**A**

$68{29/32}$.

**B**

$68{27/32}$.

**C**

$68{31/32}$.

**D**

$68{28/32}$.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Observe that all fractional numbers are having one digit to the right of the dot. So we can cancel all the dots and get a plain expression: ${(-63) × 25 - 95 × (-63)}/64$. We can now simpilfy the minus signs to get ${(95 × 63) - (63 × 25)}/64$ which equals ${2205/32}$, which is same as: $68{29/32}$
