In a camp, there are meals for $120$ men or $200$ children. If $150$ children have taken their meals, how many men will be catered to with the remaining meal ?

1. $50$
2. $40$
3. $30$
4. $20$

$\text{There is a meal for 200 children.150 children have taken the meal}$
$\text{Remaining meal = 200-150 = 50, Now}$
$\text{200 children = 120 men}$
$\therefore$ $\text{ 50 children}$ =$(\frac{120*50}{200})$ men

$=$    $\text{30 men}$

$\text{Option C is correct.}$

Given that, $200C = 120M$

$\implies 5C = 3M$

If $150$ children have taken their meals, then remaining children $= 200C – 150C = 50C = 50 \times \dfrac{3}{5}M = 30M$

So, the correct answer is $(C).$
