# Aptitude Question ID : 93926

Which of the following is greatest :
$0.7 + \sqrt{0.16},$ $1.02 - \frac{0.6}{24},$ $1.2\times 0.83$ and $\sqrt{1.44}$
[A]$1.02 - \frac{0.6}{24}$
[B]$0.7 + \sqrt{0.16}$
[C]$\sqrt{1.44}$
[D]$1.2\times 0.83$

$\mathbf{\sqrt{1.44}}$
$\because 0.7 + \sqrt{0.16} = 0.7+0.4 = 1.1$
and $1.02 - \frac{0.6}{24} = 1.02 - 0.025 = 0.995$
and $1.2 \times 0.83 = 0.996$
and $\sqrt{1.44} = 1.2$
Hence the greatest number $=\sqrt{1.44}$.
